Breeding Objects

I came across this website dedicated to the idea of “breeding objects”.  The conference asks: what is the future of manufacturing technology?  They propose using the internet as a platform for user-generation and mass-customization of consumer products.  Imagine a tool where you can design an object (a stool, bowl, desk, picture frame, jewelry, t-shirt graphics) and have it 3D printed, CNC’d, woven, or sculpted then sent to you for a price thats competitive with current day mass manufactured products.

Put the “aura” back in your everyday objects… Walter Benjamin would be proud : )
