Power of Manufacturing in end users hand

eMachineshop is a old news by now but if you have’nt checked it till now, it is a must see. It is an online machine shop that allows a user to design, price, and order custom machined parts online. Putting the power of manufacturing into the hands of users.

Tagline from the website “Why waste time traveling, calling, faxing or emailing to conventional machine shops – and waiting days for quotations? Reduce your total time up to 90%! Open doors to new products and projects, to inventing new things, to reducing the cost of parts and more. Quantity 1 to 1,000,000.?

Now this what I like the best thing about technology, it brings power into the hands of a commoner 🙂 . Previous examples include Mainframes -> PC, Newspapers -> Citizen Journalism(blogs)
