New in Technology
The idea of 3D printing has always amazed me. This is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file. Here is a video that shows how this process works:
Today, the Food and Drug Administration has approved the first prescription drug made through 3D printing: a dissolvable tablet that treats seizures. Aprecia Pharmaceuticals, an Ohio based company, said in a statement it plans to develop other medications using its 3D platform in coming years, including more neurological drugs.
I often wonder where this new technology will lead. If you have the right equipment and digital files, couldn't a person print their clothing, shoes, and appliance parts? The possibilities are endless. You can be sure that marketers and business leaders are watching this technology very closely.
