If the predictions for 3D printers are accurate, then the list for what to buy when you first move out of home will be very short, in fact the only notation will be buy 3D printer. You will move to your new place and start ordering up all the things you need to make your life comfortable, plates and cooking utensils, bedding and toiletries, in fact there will be very little that you won’t be able to print up for yourself.
That is if all the applications that are being attributed to the printers come to pass and the way that technology evolves and radically changes from year to year, there is no reason why this shouldn’t be a reality. We will all be living a version of the cartoon show The Jetsons and having out meals from a slot in the wall and our clothes newly made each day and the dirty one deconstructed each night to be reused.
In the future the printer ribbons Australia could be using all sorts of materials in conjunction with each other to produce many different types of products and can aid in the medical and food industry. There is a hope that the machines will be able to use human tissue to repair broken bodies and be able to build up layer by layer injuries that have otherwise been very difficult to treat or in some cases complete reconstruction of the human frame. This would appear to be some distance in the future but something that technicians in the medical and technical fields are most interested and excited about developing.
It would mean a complete rethink on what the term doctor means and there is a risk that with this technology being a doctor will no longer be a case of healing but knowing what buttons to press and how best the machine can aid in the healing of a person. That all that knowledge of medicine will no longer be useful in the traditional sense and then what happens if there is a breakdown in our societal structure, there will be no healers to help those in need only button pushers.
This is the failure of high technological advance, the basic know how of life disappears, there are no more people that know how to knit, cut a block of wood, milk a cow, to make butter, sew clothes or make shoes, no one to tan leather and process the raw goods into a material that can be useful and made into something else. If there is a machine that does all that, then what happened if the lights go out, who do people turn to then, it is not so bad in America, they have the Amish who still abide by simple living but in Australia more and more people rely on technology to provide and it is not a trend that is slowing. Let us hope that there is never a catastrophe that makes us rely on ourselves to survive.
