Janos Stone talks about emerging 3-D technologies.

3-D scanning has the potential to be the most disruptive of all emerging 3-D technologies. Instead of needing to know 3-D design software to create a complex 3-D file, anyone can now easily create a 3-D file with their smartphone. Photographs of an object quickly become a 3-D file from which a 3-D printed exact copy of the original can be made. This technology is called photogrammetry. With it and other nascent 3-D technologies, we are experiencing a paradigm shift allowing for a new age of object plasticity and malleability. This is a true paradigm shift, as historically human experience of the physical world has been one of object permanence.
