Trieste, May 29th, 2014 – Print a spare part for your washing machine, at home, with the 3D printer. Jump on a car anywhere you want and leave it where you prefer. Usa an app to learn how to code, make bread or meditate. The world is changing and evolving in ways we have never experienced before. If there ever was one, the Era of Abundance is over.
