On our December 8th show, we talked about advances in manufacturing driven by new technologies. We continue the discussion with Chuck Pettis, Marketing VP at Makerbot -- just one of the companies making 3D printing more widely available. He's also the founder's Dad, so we asked him what Bre Pettis, Makerbot's founder, was like as a kid. We also talked about the company's new retail store in New York where visitors can get 3D models made of their faces -- while they wait.
For the second half, we spoke with the makers of a rapidly prototyped car, the SGT01. Our guests from Team Wikispeed were CEO Joe Justice, Rob Beresford, expert in all machines that move, and Clayton Osterman, shop steward and Scrum Master in Lynnwood, Washington. We spoke about agile and test-driven development, how they build cars differently than the big manufacturers, and how they manage a diverse group of volunteers from around the country.
