The Future of Design

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has created a 3D immersive reality visualization for designing and printing rocket parts on the fly.

Last week, Musk tweeted that SpaceX had “figured out how to design rocket parts just with hand movements through the air” and that he would soon “post video of designing a rocket part with hand gestures & immediately printing in titanium.” Here, as promised, is said video:

Musk says:

“I believe we’re on the verge of a major breakthrough in design and manufacturing, in being able to take a concept of something from your mind and translate into a 3-D object intuitively on the computer, then make that virtual 3-D object real just by printing it. It’s going to revolutionize manufacturing and design in the 21st century.”
