We’re always talking about the future of design, the future of technology, the future of MAKING. In a world where LEGOs have become a prototyping tool for building robots in your living room, a world where you can carry a 3D printing pen in your pocket, how do we find the next big thing? MakerGalaxy is a show that explores the crossroads of Design, Technology, and the Future of Making.
This week we talked with Mr. Brooks Myers, CEO and Founder of the mobile 3D scanning company Knockout Concepts. After a short career in the Time-Based Media field in Los Angeles Brooks returned to his industrial design roots to create a mobile 3D scanner that allows everybody from casual users to professional designers to capture the world around them. We’ll talk with Brooks about everything from how working in a different industry helped him rediscover his roots as a designer, how he even even began the process of creating a 3D scanner, to why he thinks we’re on the cusp of a 3D scanning boom.
