3D printing emerged as one of the hottest topics at the 2013 SXSW Interactive Festival...witness the buzz around the Opening Remarks from MakerBot CEO Bre Pettis. Also part of the panel programming at this year's event was University of Texas Law School Student Cody Wilson, who is founder of the company Defense Distributed. Wilson has gained international headlines this week after revealing that his group has successfully developed the first-ever 3D-printed handgun, thus adding a significantly different dimension to the promise of a self-manufactured future.
Career-enhancing connections make the SXSW Interactive Festival so special to so many digital creatives. Come to Austin in March to connect yourself (or your company) to the new ideas, new technologies and new business opportunities that will shape the future, as well as game-changing insights from the world's most innovative thought-leaders.
