Ha. I can tell youse guys are not smokers. That girl is not worried about her smoking at all. That thing in her hand is the tobacco pouch with the government mandated warnings printed on. Ha. 36 megapixels of resolution beaten by a guy with poor eyesight, no hair, few teeth left and a lot of bad habits.
Bernard, I don't think we're on the brink of a manufacturing revolution either. 3D printers may suggest that way, and their prices are indeed coming down a lot, but I think some materials will remain the realm of specialist shops to print in. Take for now titanium which is very expensive to print (in something the size and precision of a camera body for instance). Not to mention that forged materials have strength given by the very treatment they underwent and that can not be replicated by 3D printing nor do I see how it would ever be. It's like copiers and faxes. At first they were clumsy and expensive, and you had to walk down to the corner shop to get a copy of your birth certificate for 2 bucks or some such, now everybody owns a printer. Not a top end one though. And getting the most of a top end A0 printer requires knowledge most of us can't be arsed to assimilate.
Likewise CNC. Sure, you can get anything done these days (we are at the stage where the service is offered to the large public) but some things are more expensive than others. I have seen an engine block carved out of a block of forged aluminium, but how many of us would be able to afford the machine, or the price of doing it for that matter? Or how many would actually have the knowledge needed to program the machine to do it?
In the end, I see it like the story of the copier. In the future some of us will probably have a household grade 3D scanner-printer/CNC machine at home for menial duties like printing a door handle or machining a screw, but when necessary we'll email a CAD file to the shop doing the serious stuff for a fee. Difficult/specialist materials will remain the realm of expensive specialised services. Just think a specialist coating or some such. Your car will still be manufactured in China/Taiwan/etc, your camera likewise and parts for it will still have to be ordered from the manufacturer. Not too bad if it keeps prices down.
