We have a long standing interest in the revolutionary potential for 3-D printing. Planetizen highlights an Atlantic Cities post on how Lexington, KY is making exciting use of this innovative technology:
Mayor Greg Fischer of Louisville calls the city’s annual Ideas Festival a “democratized” version of the TED conference. “You don’t have to pay ten grand to attend,” says Fischer, who moves his office to the festival grounds for the week. The big democratic scene last week was gathered around an interactive model of Louisville — cranked out on the spot by 3D printers, to 1/1000 scale — which attendees shaped and changed as their inner urban planner desired.
Cool or what?
