What is this documentary about?

3D Printing

3D Printing

Home manufacturing is now a reality. Anyone can make a physical object with a simple downloadable file and a thingie-maker.

Maker Spaces

Maker Spaces

The home 3D printer was born in a maker space.  In these spaces hackers and curious people of all kinds gather to share ideas, collaborate, and build together.

D-I-T: Do It Together

D-I-T: Do It Together

The Maker movement is growing.  The do-it-together approach is enabling large groups of people to express their pent-up creativity and make ideas into reality.

Rapid Prototyping

Rapid Prototyping

Better, more customizable designs are developing.  These new tools can make products faster than centralized factories in China.

Crowdsourcing

Crowdsourcing

Group collaboration is now possible on a global scale.  By connecting online, people can pool their resources in a way that was once only feasible for corporations and governments.

Open Source Information

Open Source Information

Learn and share just about anything online.  This environment helps ideas develop faster than old business models. Collaboration, participation, and community can improve all aspects of our lives.

Intellectual Property

Intellectual Property

Not all ideas are free.  Copyright and Patents are a legal barrier to the free exchange of ideas. In the age where bits can become atoms, where is the line between free speech and intellectual property?

Tactical Urbanism

Tactical Urbanism

The rules are broken everywhere.  Using the open source approach and guerrilla tactics, citizens are taking it upon themselves to change their cities.  Are their unsanctioned projects a benefit or a nuisance?

3D Printed Guns

3D Printed Guns

Some free ideas are dangerous.  Guns are now accessible to anyone with a 3D printer.  What could develop next?

Maker Education

Maker Education

Kids get it.  A generation of native makers who think differently about design, products, and collaboration might solve our greatest challenges.

Mass Customization

Mass Customization

A new economy is coming.  Our system of manufacturing and distribution will change radically once these tools and techniques reach the mainstream.

The Third Industrial Revolution

The Third Industrial Revolution

Now is the time to be excited.  We are creating a new economy, a new democracy, and a new freedom brought by a mastery of technology once only found in science fiction.
