Reinventing the Wheel with Micro-Manufacturing, Co-Creation, and 3D Printing

What you’ve got here is one part engineering co-creation, one part wicked cool 3D printing, and one part automotive revolution. In this week’s Fish Fry, we welcome Dan Fox – CTO of Local Motors. Dan and I discuss the the variety of 3D printed cars micro-manufactured at Local Motors, what their co-creation program is all about, and how you can get involved in their Zelator Drone Build project. In the second half of our episode, we dive into the world of safety and security critical software development. Jim McElroy (LDRA) joins us and we chat about what their “Road to Certification” is all about, what kind of critical safety and security training classes LDRA offers, and why LDRA offers a 30 day trial of their tool suite for free.

If you read my post Who Put the Silicon in Silicon Valley? then you know my conclusion: Let's go with Shockley. He invented the transistor, came here, hired a bunch of young PhDs, and sent them out (by accident, not design) to create the companies, that created the compa...
