First we experienced the digital revolution in computation. Then we experienced it in communications. And now, according to Neil Gershenfeld, director of MIT’s Center for Bits and Atoms, the digital revolution is moving into surprising new territory: the world of manufactured physical goods. This new development on the digital frontier is the subject of Gershenfeld’s new book, FAB: The Coming Revolution on your Desktop–From Personal Computers to Personal Fabrication (Basic Books, 2005).

Gershenfeld presented his ideas at a Global Business Network lecture in California this April.
