In the process he cracked open a much larger one: In an age when anyone can share, download and create not just digital files but also physical things, thanks to the proliferation of cheap 3-D printers, are companies at risk of losing control of the objects they sell?

From virtual reality to audience interaction and everything imaginable in between, this interactive experience of the final student creations is truly a must-see event!
