Seeing is believing – Thank you Robochop – CCTV meets Industry 4.0

We spend a lot of time talking about the power of the image and how it is starting to be used more in manufacturing.

At our visit to CeBIT last month (we were finalists at the Code-n event) we had a stand in the Industry 4.0 hall, surrounded by the latest trends in German manufacturing.

Front and centre was ROBOCHOP a beautiful installation showing the power of on-demand, customised manufacturing. From their website you get to design your cube and then watch the machine create it.

Here’s the nice surprise – as soon as my cube came off the production line, I got a notifcation email containing a beautiful video:

of MY cube !

Would I like that for my sushi? my car? my jewellery?  … hell yeah.
