Techonology has revolutionized the way we build and prototype products compared to methods of old. The First Machine Age happened between 1880-1945, in the later stages of the Second Inustrial Revolution. If we though those advancements were exciting and revolutionary, consider that today, with the help of 3D technology and modeling, certain prototypes can be made in a matter of minutes. At present, manufacturing still remains the heart of a strong economy in both the developing and advanced nations, but it’s constant evolution increases complexity while yielding benefits. We’ll tackle the advancements the machines are making in this rapidly advancing age we live in, and monitor the progress humans are making in figuring out how to cope.
