'..We are going to transition into an economy that is very productive and just does not need a lot of human workers. Managing that transition is going to be the greatest challenge that our society faces.'

'..encourage people to solve their own problems innovatively, rather than just providing easy answers .. [within] a decade the 3D printing revolution will have taken hold globally. “It removes barriers, anyone can make anything,” he says. The limiting factor is the imagination of the inventor.'

'Butcher anticipates that 3D printing could slash the cost of organ transplant surgery and help bring it to the developing world. “Some of the major costs for organ replacement are the limited supply and the transportation and storage costs,” he says. “3D printing-based tissue engineering creates a new organ from scratch, fundamentally removing those costs.” And even though new materials are needed, they needn’t be prohibitively expensive either. “We currently use about $10 of polymer to print a human sized heart valve,” says Butcher.

Lipson also thinks that 3D printing could help to train doctors and surgeons. Removing a tumour accurately, for example, he says, could easily be practiced if a scan of the tumour site is made and then a replica printed. “There are ethical and cost issues with cadavers and animals, but a 3D printer can recreate what you need,” Lipson says. Not only that, but the texture of live tissues can be recreated: rigor mortis makes cadavers stiff and unrealistic for someone who wants to learn what surgery on a live patient really feels like.

Cronin also has accessibility in mind. He says that by turning the instructions for the printer into a smartphone app, combined with a pre-packaged set of chemical inks, his system could bring drugs to remote communities that desperately need them. He’s hoping to be able to provide printing instructions for simple painkillers, anti-malarials, or in future maybe even drugs that pharmaceuticals companies know how to make but don’t market because there isn’t high demand for them.

..3D printing combined with mobile phone technology can allow remote communities to access a range of things that otherwise would be impossible..

In the Vigyan Ashram, Deshmukh offers a cautionary word. “We don’t want to work on technologies for the sake of technology,” he says. Undoubtedly 3D printers offer huge opportunities, but Deshmukh hopes that their thoughtful introduction will encourage people to solve their own problems innovatively, rather than just providing easy answers.

Lipson predicts, with an air of optimism, that in a decade the 3D printing revolution will have taken hold globally. “It removes barriers, anyone can make anything,” he says. The limiting factor is the imagination of the inventor.'
