The amazing equipment was created by Jonathan Hare on a 3D printer in his kitchen. We are as breathless today about someone printing 3-D models in their home as we were in the 1980s about someone having a machine in their house to actually print leaflets – how rare, how exotic! But in a few years time, how common! innovations in elxectronics constantly astound us, then bore us, then amuse us. In a few years time the petrol car will be as quaint as a steam engine, and driverless electric cars will be perfectly natural. The speed of progress is quite electrifying.
And so is the rate the Festival is approaching.
