We’re always talking about the future of design, the future of technology, the future of MAKING. In a world where we can interact with empty space, a world where we can 3D print our own shower curtain rings and bionic ears, a world where we’ll be sending people to space for vacation, how do we find the next ‘big thing’? Maker Galaxy is a show that explores the crossroads of Design, Technology, and the Future of Making. In this episode, we’ll be talking to Dr. Jordan Brandt about his plans for manufacturing Elon Musk’s Hyperloop concept, what’s happening with 4D printing, how he and his team use CAD in the cloud, and what does the future of professional design look like?

We’ll be discussing:

  • What is a Technology Futurist?
  • How will the Hyperloop be manufactured?
  • What is your experience with designing collaboratively with Fusion 360?
  • What is the future of professional design?
  • …and more!

Stay tuned for next week’s episode where we’ll be talking to a couple of guys who are redefining Smart Home.
