Are welcome back door and -- group with view entrepreneur who we kept. You'll -- Calgary hall. -- something that started right after Katrina. And if you look very small in two bedroom with the idea of some people that. Were in New Orleans so -- New Orleans before Katrina pick through and came back with the intentions. Of getting bit soft attracting go to Purdue were innovators creator type and where they've done exactly that. This week -- we took through brutal week were of broadcasting live from go your whole. Induces. A situation -- people from all over the world. We've trimmed its and they bright here we have princes were barrel. Yes sir Branson so I -- you're at the local 3-D design that's correct I hit 3000 questions so. Don't go anywhere for the rest of the day. Also we have. Is adorable hassle -- RFC of course. Or you do in school yes on the upper school head at it's a burning schools are. And we also who have few ribbons with three insists that's correct. Welcome to sure appreciate it very much -- inches -- store -- view. Cannot remember his name for the life of me but I haven't doctor Roland. Probably two months ago. Saw him on -- dot com he was a surgeon. And he had befriended them a kidney. Started -- it hit me before the show. Finish the kid the right before that you win that brought it out in his gloved hand. Laid raw and put it. In a patient and brought the patient back a year later and remember when I've when that first read about three feet for -- -- Ought to think of groups of well they don't mean printer. They mean like ultimately -- go in and the science fiction laboratory. With everybody and -- but brilliant as the president and. It's a predator out there. Develop so far now in advance that he bobbled it and our homes. They haven't been schools they have in the library is. It's just going to be another household item pretty soon like your computer. Your iPhone just a 3-D printer. In the you know we've we've restored it who chose -- -- -- experts I governments had it's innovative but that probably. So in future or it in the and that distant future but. The bottom line is it's for hobbyists. That's for small thing it's it's too expensive. It would spin. What what's the situation 3-D printing I becoming more mainstream. -- people always under underestimate. How fast. People can adapt and change you know as a culture so I think. Yeah that technology is developing bass -- people are excited about it they're fascinated and they want they wanna use it you know just like. Personal computers are iphones you know people. Thought I was crazy yep first and futuristic. But now everybody has one and it's normal and I was only you know twenty years ago so. It's changing fast and it's exciting. Q. Believe inaugural Rick you throw at them a couple of -- on exploded through. Theory and -- law. Had a businesses on a couple of months ago who had written a book -- waking up in time. And his side you is that -- but 20/20 424 to five. We'll have a computer that makes a computer. That's -- actually better than him Richard later. Middleby -- support and they confidence Federer. Do you see that kind of thing happening with more flaw in in three deeper. Well 3-D printing is clearly on mores laws even faster if it's they print speeds are doubling every eighteen months or more. And -- for those that don't know that is more law via that computer we'll double -- Eighteen deported or -- every year yet there are their maker groups who use treaty partners to make new 3-D printers. And real the attic if they can make about 80%. Machine just by using the machine. So the pet engineering path for this technology is is. It's really exciting it's pretty well laid out over the next ten years that these machines would get better faster cheaper but more materials there's no. There's no real impediment. And artificial intelligence. Is coming into the equation to help these machines to make things that no one ever met him before so it's. It's a very exciting new frontiers that that it's it if you read the works of -- wallets everything -- what popped up. While -- bit repetitive of the show. Duel so human soon cute won't go to school that all you've just 3-D prove all the serve he planned at all. Well well but that's certainly a distant possibility that right now with we were looking pretty printing in and what I can do for students we want. When empower creativity. We want to empower kids to be creative in the ways and three printing. 3-D design cad software. The technology behind these devices. It is really -- a whole new generation of designers and tankers and makers. Kids have ideas and it's for a long time so I have this idea for a new thing. On how to get them off the ground. Three prayer allows anybody. Any fourth grader with a great idea. Two. You know take their idea from their head to an actual physical objects and so. When you look at the power when you look at that power and what can do for kids. That's really that's really how we see it -- it as an educational tool. Not to promote creativity promote creative problem solving part of a larger effort it -- Two produce the next generation a creative problem solvers your new loans. Part of a multiple strand approach that that Newman is taking two to Foster that. Creativity in that we seeing kids that that -- creativity and how we harness that and and show them what's possible. So. That you were really excited we're going to be offering a course of three the art and design. And we're hoping to partner with some local designers and I'm an artist can compete absolutely there there there may be an adult component. Editor art school programs. We're putting together makers face at him and that that's arrival. Serving any school in the city of rallying school himself and who gets big ideas about how to then translate that into a possible while larger community resource system. The usual. Think tank showed this extraordinary CmdrTaco. New Orleans on -- of the world we we do this every year. Organization call I -- ability to attract people from all over the world. Give you an idea how a mutual differences laughs Q were rumors here and they brought in -- Tillman from Latvia. And one at apparent glances. And the other ones -- a pair of glasses when you put him on if you could talk to each other without talking. Blinking in the classes you can type in short towards that kind of extraordinary or two for tourism right now we're talking about. 3-D printing of welcome back continued the conversation right -- this. Of which you could hear some of the -- review comes from Korea was talking about 3-D printing. Human organs and and she reviews shows. Extraordinary talent rupiah. Or to turn new week that I -- build it starts every year. Rather than take up our short remaining time introducing everybody else just has questioned France's. About 2000 years before you were born. There was a book called future shop. And it was about science moving at such speed that eventually. If Al runs our ability can -- up with -- you're you're looking at the reading printing we're just talking. All the error about being able to put -- in Arkansas with this if we keep up with the technology. -- that's incredible but. I think that's an entrepreneurship for you know their forward thinkers and they're. At the forefront of these new technologies so. Once we. As a group of entrepreneurs couldn't understand and trying to you know. Understand how these new technologies can fit within our culture. We can gradually move forward as a society. That's a Tampa red and we gradually moving forward that we have to. Doubles that it. I think -- we can do it I think it. No you're the students at Newman. They actually -- world or experimenting with 3-D and entrepreneur or is -- I have a freshman. Sitting in the Booth over in the other room. And he is. He's lit up by the stuff the 3-D software. He's just he's mesmerized by it and he spent most of the morning with a stand here showcasing in what you can do with some with some pretty. Pretty accessible very accessible three soft pretty this on software and so he said you know what I wanted to design a Newman themed chess sets. And so in about I don't know an hour hour and a half he figured out how to make -- And the top has been -- -- -- anyway but. Yeah we have kids I haven't taught one student had to use the software. We're going to be doing that next year -- the course that I mentioned earlier -- prettier design course but for the first -- I just said hey here's the software go play -- -- -- you can come up with. And when you get Smart kids who were motivated and and drawn to this kind of thing that that. Objects that they are able to produce -- idea is that they have and the way that they are able to think that's really what we're trying to teach trying to teach that. That design process that thinking process. This is a manifestation of how we teach kids to think. If you watch that student and very much Michaels and no room. And and and watch him figure it out you know how it is this will want to do this now. Okay some of the try this and he fails then he goes back and we can try something else. In his first idea didn't work and so they had to go back and start over but that's teaching resilience. That's teaching. It's certainly teaching incredible problem solving skills. And it's teaching it it it's taking kid with it -- an idea and and allowing them to express that idea and then in a really cool way so. It's important part of the program and in that created problems. Cute if you don't mind really what you were told me about the gentlemen working on it to. Spinal column spinal disk yeah below Larry upon us or -- say regenerative medicine. Engineered Cornell. And he's one of the they're five or six major medical institutions that are out in the lead on bio printing which is 3-D printing of tissue and 3-D -- of organs and other types of things. So he he made me aware of recent. Experiment where he. Did substituted into mice they 3-D print its final desk that took their own stem cells three permitted this final this removed. The standing -- this from the mouse and inserted the the the three credit one and was -- 200 for 200 PM in in the in the experiment which is basically unheard of in what is an -- they need to -- no rejections to the the every single mouse except that the implant. Because they were working with their own with their own stem cells their own tissues so so that's part of the magic of bio -- Is that your harvesting cells from an organ it that you're organ. This is what the Wake Forest guys doing he's harvesting cells from from organs he's scaling them up then he's printing them down into it it. Into a scaffolding that that is then going back into the body. So by -- -- essentially uses existing cells in your own organs or your own stem cells is on differentiated stem cells a starter material. And that leads to. That great great acceptance by your own body of what's being implanted in your body so it's a better way to do it. Them the other ways that you get them. There are these the controversy -- themselves through the skin snows though there these are off the shelf these have very. On noncontroversial. Adults themselves who do we see you a future. Where we developed cancers from Morgan we do reserve. Well he's. And doctor -- like force has been out at twenty years and he's he's the leader in the field but there are many other institutions that are that are. Move fast to and the like anything in bio biologics are Biotech it there's a lot of phase one phase to phase three trials that have to take place before this before it would all be really commercialized at scale but the the game then. Pace of their breakthroughs is breathtaking it's it's it's it's really. Gives you vision of what human medicine will look like in the next five to ten years and and I think this technology will will make a major impact on. Present were just. Manner so let. What site do you go through some bit like you're young you're an extraordinary view. What are the benefits of hooking up and on through we. Well first of all I got to meet all of you. The I mean the network being at the network that they provide those. Really valuable you know. Since Britney printing and my field so no it requires. You know connections with other fields because people have to come together to. See you what it's all about and how it can be implemented and our culture so. You know an education. I have the pleasure of spending some time with all of our exhibit on the -- Same with you says company makes the treaty partners that I'll be using in the future so. Yes that's really great. Well ladies and gentlemen thank you so much fascinating half hour hopefully Meebo -- get somebody you know you're on the show little later date you'll hole whores so. Thank you so much thank you for coming right back.
