Consider the computer mouse. It takes a massive, sprawling, global system, and thousands of parts and people from all over the world, many months, or even years after conceptualization, and design, to get that product to your desk. But what if you could do it all in a "factory" the size of your one-bedroom apartment… in a building down the street?

I sat down with Matthew Putman and talked about the future of manufacturing. In the first place, everything is getting smaller.

We talked about his company’s journey from the microscope, his grand ambition with the work, the future of nanotechnology, the factory that lives inside your bedroom, and what this all means for the future of our city.

It’s distributed, decentralized manufacturing. Welcome to the nano-factory.
