And the Economist says innovation is over. Clearly they never heard of robotic chainsaw carving, the Next Big Thing. No more cutting down trees and shipping them to mills and turning them into lumber and making the wood into furniture, this machine skips all the middle steps and goes straight from tree to furniture, taking a chainsaw to the entire supply chain with digital design.
Truly, this is the future of hyper-local manufacturing. Watch your back, IKEA.
