That’s right. The world of 3D printing has evolved tremendously in the last few years and has really taken motion since 2013. This innovation requires a bit of further development but we thought Joshua Harris’ Clothes Printer concept was too cool not to share…
Current clothing production is wasteful and takes up too much space. This could be a problem when it’s predicted 75% of the Earth’s population will be living in cities around 40 years from now. Space is already a valuable commodity but by the time this migration has taken place, space could be the most valuable.
This idea centers around the concept of feeding your old clothes into his machine, you can then use that material to instantly print the next outfit you’ve had your eye on.
Thanks to new technology and innovative thinking, urban gardens, a connected global network and private replication technologies, consumers have more power to stay close to home. One major opportunity we identified was a revamp of the clothing industry. We found the clothing industry to be an extremely wasteful and inefficient use of our resources. Clothing is shipped to several different places before being distributed to the consumer. Also, its lifespan is only a few years before being either disposed of or re-purposed.
