As many copies of absolutely anything that you could ever want.

:00:28.:00:44.

What could possibly go wrong? We ask, How close are we to having 3D

:00:44.:00:54.
:00:54.:00:57.

printers in our house? Waxing lyrical with the superstar.

band. Around 200 years ago the Industrial Revolution changed the

:01:17.:01:22.

way we create things. Today, almost everything we owned is mass-produce

:01:22.:01:26.

in some factory somewhere in the world. That could all be about to

:01:26.:01:32.

change. As consumer tech has turned many of us many of us ographers, DJs,

:01:32.:01:37.

journalists, could it be about to remove the barriers to production

:01:37.:01:43.

itself? We ask whether soon we may be able to produce what we want,

:01:43.:01:52.

when we want at home. Last month, London hosted an event showcasing

:01:52.:01:59.

what was reported as a new way to produce things. Printing them. On

:01:59.:02:03.

show, a variety of objects from toys to intricately designed

:02:03.:02:13.

fashion items and a live band playing three printed instruments.

:02:13.:02:17.

-- 3D. The idea has been around about 30 years and it's being used

:02:17.:02:22.

in many creative industries from crafting sculptures for the Swedish

:02:22.:02:29.

Ice Hotel to the latest James Bond movie. The classic Aston Martin car

:02:29.:02:35.

was replicated using one of them world's largest 3D printers and the

:02:35.:02:38.

movie makers had a hand at what happened to it without the chance

:02:38.:02:45.

of scratching and expensive original. 3D designs are brought to

:02:45.:02:52.

life layer by layer, each layer is in and the finer the detail. With

:02:52.:02:56.

basic home printers starting at about �900 and the prices falling

:02:56.:03:00.

quickly, many think it may be something we may all get involved

:03:00.:03:05.

with. The biggest and most exciting thing that has just happened is

:03:05.:03:08.

this technology that was only available to the elite and it now

:03:08.:03:13.

and the hands of anyone. Anybody can be an industrial designer and

:03:13.:03:17.

anybody can be a mechanical engineer and anybody can be an

:03:17.:03:25.

architect and make prototypes and models and products at home. Take

:03:25.:03:30.

this Stowe's novel, if I wanted to replace this, I have to phone the

:03:30.:03:34.

manufacturer to get them to send me one and that is presuming it was

:03:34.:03:40.

still in production. In the future, with a 3D Printer at home, I can

:03:40.:03:45.

simply download a blueprint and make my own. All I can design one

:03:45.:03:55.
:03:55.:03:56.

from scratch. To do that, we need to create a 3D model and the

:03:57.:04:01.

printer needs to know what to do. One option is to scan what we want

:04:01.:04:06.

to reproduce. With an elaborate set up like this one or with a portable

:04:06.:04:11.

scanner that looks a bit like an Byron. More into print of checks

:04:11.:04:17.

and it's not ideal. There's often areas of occlusion and the

:04:18.:04:22.

Skandalis cannot see them directly or clearly and 3D software is

:04:22.:04:28.

needed. One at feet and into make the process a bit more touchy-feely

:04:28.:04:34.

is this company. It's device allows you to create designs using forced

:04:34.:04:39.

feedback and more traditional Scott Harding techniques can be used. It

:04:39.:04:45.

feels like a video game, really, and it has a feedback helping your

:04:45.:04:49.

mind get into the 3D sense of what's going on and the feel much

:04:49.:04:55.

more in control like you're malting something. However we make them,

:04:55.:05:00.

most of us will need to have our grand designs finished off by a

:05:00.:05:05.

professional 3D artist which represents a major barrier. A much

:05:05.:05:10.

more likely future would be downloading a model from the web to

:05:10.:05:14.

print at home. In fact, you can already buy or download many

:05:14.:05:20.

designs. Some websites even turn our photos into a printable model.

:05:20.:05:26.

It objects become so easily wreck level, this may raise more concerns.

:05:26.:05:31.

Copying them may infringe the inventor's writes just like

:05:31.:05:36.

pirating music or movies. You think of lots of Walt Disney characters

:05:36.:05:42.

that people may want to produce as Tories and they have certain rights

:05:42.:05:46.

and they have three deep trademarks as well existing. That also

:05:46.:05:51.

protects the object such as the shape or the bottle or the brandy

:05:51.:05:55.

bottle orate perfume bottle, things like that. They have a

:05:55.:05:59.

characteristic shape and the machines may be able to search the

:05:59.:06:06.

database which has those rights record. Then they allow people to

:06:06.:06:10.

buy the licence to use the rights or to be able to produce that

:06:10.:06:18.

object. There's other concerns also. In this news playpen of creativity,

:06:18.:06:23.

how do you protect yourself from a fake designed? The ones you may

:06:23.:06:27.

download that don't actually work when you print them. Or if you want

:06:27.:06:31.

to create the toy for your son or daughter, how do you know that it

:06:31.:06:35.

may be suitable for them to play with? This fire engine comes with a

:06:35.:06:41.

warning that it should not be used by children under the age of three.

:06:41.:06:50.

Disney is testing the future where we can create new toy is safely.

:06:50.:06:54.

Even the screen on this is created in the Printer. There's no circuit

:06:55.:07:00.

board and instead a unique optical design allows the lights to

:07:00.:07:05.

illuminate the display in different ways. New designs that are

:07:05.:07:10.

interlaced with many moving parts and can be printed it in one go and

:07:10.:07:15.

some say your imagination is the limit. Unfortunately, it is not. We

:07:15.:07:20.

will need to know a bit about the engineering also. There's a lot of

:07:20.:07:25.

debate about what objects may be suitable for 3D printing where it's

:07:25.:07:29.

at home or in the offer has but one constraint is the materials

:07:29.:07:33.

available. You may have some part with multiple materials and you may

:07:33.:07:37.

not have a printer that can print on those materials but there may be

:07:37.:07:41.

types of people that make use them for a home manufacturing. For your

own designs with a secret shops given a new lease of life not only

:07:51.:07:55.

providing occasional use of expensive printers, this one costs

:07:55.:08:01.

over �50,000, but also the know how how to get the home designs to

:08:01.:08:06.

actually work. Making a functional object depends on part in the

:08:06.:08:10.

materials used, compressed power that is more brittle and it's OK

:08:10.:08:15.

for some models but not for moving parts. A colour Scheldt less than

:08:15.:08:19.

one millimetre thick provides the detail. Tougher reasons need to be

:08:19.:08:23.

melted to flow through the printing nozzle. They may be flexible but

:08:23.:08:29.

tend not to be able to look withstand Australian replacing a

:08:29.:08:36.

moving part in the Carrefour example. Insuring high quality and

:08:36.:08:39.

protecting the design rights may be the biggest challenge. Despite a

:08:39.:08:45.

hype, the revolution of printing whatever we need in our own homes

:08:45.:08:51.

remains unrealistic. Designing personalised small gifts or

:08:51.:08:54.

downloading a treaty to sign we may print or take to the printing shop

:08:54.:09:03.

has already materialised. A slightly more realistic view of 3D

:09:03.:09:11.

printing. Next, we look at that take news. The new mobile operating

:09:11.:09:16.

system will be launched in January. The BlackBerry 10 will be available

:09:16.:09:20.

on two new handsets with a feature caused flow allowing multi-tasking

:09:21.:09:26.

easier. In a bid to keep loyal uses it has upgraded the BlackBerry

Stephenson of Ski has let Microsoft with immediate effect. He has been

:09:48.:09:52.

seen as instrumental in trying to get the Microsoft ecosystem with

ex-boss, PC and tablets and online services. His departure at is due

:09:59.:10:03.

to the strained relationship with the chief executive, who had been

improve the service even more acquiring St imaging company to

:10:39.:10:42.

launching its new super-fast broadband service to some US homes

:10:42.:10:47.

offering speeds of up to one gigabit per second. They have been

buying up dark fibres from telecom firms bringing that into homes

and one terror by to storage on Google. The Tate world can be more

:11:12.:11:18.

than a little bit insular. It sometimes needs a helping hand from

Global Icons, superstars shouting from the rooftops about their

:11:22.:11:28.

passion for technology. One such Black-f

Black-Eyed Peas lead singer Will.i.am, let's face it, when

:11:31.:11:35.

William Adams punctuates his name to have more Dobson when the dress,

:11:35.:11:39.

you know it's likely to be a street of Haitink goodness flowing through

:11:39.:11:44.

his veins. Richard Thaler caught up with Will.i.am to find out what

:11:44.:11:54.

makes him tick. With chart-topping Grammy

:11:54.:12:00.

Grammy awards, songwriter and DJ Will.i.am is nothing short of a

:12:00.:12:08.

musical phenomenon. When we met recently in Manhattan, it soon

:12:08.:12:13.

became clear he has designs on the world of hi-tech as well. I was an

:12:13.:12:23.
:12:23.:12:24.

that Intel? Actually, they are no wherein the smartphone business. A

small company seems to be doing well. OK, the smartphones still

need a server. What Servers are they using? Intel. Anyway, my

of the mob would democracy and video has disrupted traditional TV

:13:53.:13:58.

broadcasters who pieces still harbour the old school mentality.

:13:58.:14:04.

Broadcasters, unfortunately, as robust as they are, their business

:14:04.:14:14.

is television, monopolising it with ants and that's it. It's not true

:14:14.:14:19.

innovation. If it was true innovation they would have created

:14:19.:14:26.

Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. you make about the YouTube content?

:14:26.:14:32.

When they put in millions of young creative up and coming produces.

:14:32.:14:42.

Are they are threat to the YouTube will be a threat to to the

:14:42.:14:46.

broadcasters when every single home has a smart television. A smart

:14:46.:14:54.

television is a threat to cable. Right? It allows your sister, youth,

:14:54.:15:03.

who watching, to be a network yourself. Had the impact culture?

:15:03.:15:08.

The brand will go where the culture in packs. Culture today is

:15:08.:15:14.

rehashing yesterday. The new Spider-man. But how many times have

:15:14.:15:20.

I seen that? The new Three Stooges. Are you serious? Where is the new

:15:20.:15:28.

depth thinking? We need innovation. It will come from the new platforms.

:15:28.:15:34.

Check this out. This is a South Korean book, he read Gangnam Style.

If a current Act could break all over the world because of a YouTube

:15:45.:15:53.

clip, not a network clip, but is a connected world. Connected

:15:53.:15:57.

television has not been successful so far. Some people do not pick

:15:57.:16:03.

them up. This is just the beginning. Imagine this is an marathon. You

:16:03.:16:07.

are like, man, Pranab Mukherjee from Slovakia or looks like she

:16:07.:16:13.

will win. She is in the lead. -- girl. Then the Ethiopian person is

:16:13.:16:17.

all the way in the back. Guess who will win the race? You have to look

:16:17.:16:24.

at it from the long run. Leaving had better hurry increasingly

:16:24.:16:29.

taking us away from connected television and on to apps could

:16:29.:16:33.

second screens. Like tablets or smartphones. We are finding out

:16:33.:16:42.

more about shows Paul tweeting on air. It is innovation. It is not

:16:42.:16:49.

happening here. I am watching a to the -- television programme. On

:16:49.:16:54.

that programme, the victim is running. They are running from the

:16:54.:16:59.

killer or something. They could to a safe house. They close the door

:16:59.:17:06.

and look for a telephone. It is winning. Your phone rings in your

:17:06.:17:12.

house. Hello? The character is talking to you. Can you do

:17:12.:17:19.

something? Take this number down. I'll send you a text, OK? Say OK. I

:17:19.:17:29.

want you to get the message. How does this happen? It is interactive.

:17:29.:17:34.

The interactivity from phone calls and e-mails, you are participating.

:17:34.:17:39.

You type in your phone number in to the networks. You are part of the

:17:39.:17:44.

script. They know who you are, where you are and what you are

:17:44.:17:49.

brain. My people at the networks are thinking like that. They are

:17:49.:17:54.

trying to how to monetise yesterday is that of monetising contend today.

:17:54.:17:59.

That is why it is coming from the TEC and on the broadcasters unless

:17:59.:18:04.

they get visionaries to be a part of their thing. If it sounds like a

:18:04.:18:12.

sales pitch. No. It sells for a job application. You want to shake

:18:12.:18:22.
:18:22.:18:23.

things up. Having 80 actors on a television show last year, he was
