In an age of custom-made, do-it-yourself product design and creation, the collective potential of a million garage tinkerers and enthusiasts is about to be unleashed, Anderson says, driving a resurgence of American manufacturing. A generation of “makers” using the Web’s innovation model could help drive the next big wave in the global economy as the new technologies of digital design and rapid prototyping give everyone the power to invent. Anderson will take us to the front lines of a new industrial revolution as today’s entrepreneurs, using open-source design and 3-D printing, bring manufacturing to the desktop.
