Why aren't the objects we manufacture made to be beautiful, on top of being optimized for functionality? Turns out, the way we manufacture things hasn't really changed since the time of the Roman empire. With the introduction of 3D printing, that paradigm is finally starting to change. Lin Kayser steps into the future and shows how we can leverage the full potential of this technology, by employing algorithms to come up with solutions to design problems. If you can imagine it, you can build it! Lin Kayser is a self-taught software engineer-turned-entrepreneur, who has been building startup companies for more than 20 years. With Hyperganic, a software company he co-founded in 2015, he is working on the future of manufacturing in a world of 3D printers and biological processes.
