S1 E5 - 3D Manufacturing: “How to get the Kinder surprise toy without opening the egg”

September 30, 2018

Former Robot Wars judge and DesignSpark blogger Dr Lucy Rogers is joined by award winning comedians Bec Hill and Harriet Braine for the History Makers podcast, where they explore modern technology and the people throughout history who have made it all possible.

In episode five, the trio discusses whether 3D manufacturing and printing is our salvation or damnation. Dr Lucy explains the weird world of 3D manufacturing, “robot” Harriet uses her databanks to bring a maker from history to life and Bec desperately clings on to the concept of hope in a world increasingly obsessed by materialistic wealth.

So set your ears to receive and your mind to blown for History Makers!
