Week in Review: January 2nd to 8th
And we are back with Week in Review!
Authentise CEO Andre Wegner talks about the lifestyle impacts of 3DP at CES2016. New Balance and Intel want to make your running shoes better. More about 3D printing at CES and promising investment opportunities for the new year.
3D printing could change what we buy and how we buy it. Could shipping be a thing of the past? Or will ships be 3D printed? Authentise CEO, Andre Wegner, and analyst Joe Kampton discussed retail, personalization, distributed manufacturing and more at the TCT 3D Printing Conference at CES this week. If you did not have a chance to join, you can still check out TCT’s live updates of the session here.
Taking its mission to design the ultimate, tech-optimized 3D printed running shoe midsole to the next level, New Balance has announced a third defining partnership with Intel to use its RealSense 3D scanning and imaging technology to gather precise measurements of each customers’ foot, and potentially create the most accurate customizable 3D printed midsoles on the market. The announcement was made at CES 2016 during the Intel CES press conference. 3Ders have a very good write up on the announcement here.
After last year’s stock implosion of 3D printing giants 3D Systems and Stratasys and their rapidly dwindling good will on the stock market, Scott J Grunewald, from 3DPrint.com, have posted his opinion on what are the best bets on the 3D printing stock market this year: Medical 3D Printing Applications, Metal 3D Printing, 3D Printing Materials, and 3D Software.
What is your opinion? What are your thoughts on investing this year in the 3DP space? Do you agree with Grunewald? Tweet your opinion to @authentise.
