A ideia, do editor da revista Esquire, A. J. Jacobs, descrita aqui. Depois duma série de experiências pouco pacíficas, o escritor conclui:

After spending weeks with 3-D printing, I have no doubt it will change the world in ways we can hardly imagine. Much of the change will be behind the scenes, unobserved by consumers. Engineers foresee a lightweight largely 3-D-printed airplane that could cut fuel costs significantly. That savings will (fingers crossed) be passed along to travelers. As Mr. Lipton says, we are in for a “silent revolution.”
