"The times they are a-changing" – Bob Dylan’s lyrics may not originally have been written with today’s technological developments in mind, but in some ways they’re now more relevant than ever. Digital innovations that sweep in and scoop up everything that stands in their way have come to be known as disruptive technologies – they can transform long-established markets forever and completely change the rules of the game. One of the key themes at CeBIT this year centers on technologies that are already on the brink of disruption, with a focus on augmented reality, autonomous systems, sensors and 3D printing as innovations that are set to change our world within just a few years.
Bang on trend, Berlin-based technology startup BigRep – the manufacturer and developer of the world’s largest series production 3D printer – is offering an exclusive preview of the latest generation of BigRep ONE. Featuring as a key partner at the Bitkom stand in Hall 4, the young company is giving people the chance to experience the enormous potential of large-format 3D printing live. Visitors can gain an exclusive insight into the latest generation of the printer, speak to CEO René Gurka, hear expert opinions and predictions on the development of 3D printing, and see real-life examples of large-format 3D printing applications in industry. Meanwhile, the absolute highlight of the stand is likely to be the live printing of a modular rocket measuring some 170 centimeters – proving the sky really is the limit.
