This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. 3D printers are empowering younger generations to realize their “maker” dreams without being clouded by self-doubt.
Susan Hinton is a web developer by day, and hobby enthusiast by night. She’s been heavily immersed in the 3D printing scene since 2009, teaching and enabling others in the technology. Her latest weapon of choice is a Printrbot Junior, which has been tricked out with upgrades and experiments. In 2011, she released a 3D printed jewelry range at http://owlposse.com. Her idea of an ideal Friday night is 3D modeling jewelry and robots, accompanied by a glass or two of quality scotch. As a board member of SYN Shop the Las Vegas hackerspace, Susan maintains the rapid prototyping station there. She’s probably attempting to 3D print a cat right now.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
