The Coming Logistics Revolution (w/ Josh Wolfe & Michael Green) | Tech Trends

For the full transcript:
Josh, it’s been almost 18 months since we sat down last.
Feels like it was yesterday.
It really does. You were absolutely one of the best interviews that we ever had on Real Vision. People were just incredibly excited to hear you talk about basically anything. I want to push you on a couple of topics. One, you’ve said for the longest time that matter matters. That was one of the primary philosophies that you had at Lux. And explain what that means just quickly.
Well, one part of it is science, and one part of it is a little bit of sanctimonious righteousness. But matter that matters, meaning we were investing in things that were basically derived from breakthroughs in physics, and chemistry, and material science. Thinking about the atoms when you had a world that was dominated by investor interest and flow of capital and talent into things that were bits, the 0s and 1s of our digital economy. The internet optical networking. And the sanctimonious part of this and the righteous part was we always said that we were funding stuff that really had impact. And it wasn’t Angry Birds and virtual pigs, and we can debate whether that in some way has some merit for society. But funding something like, nuclear waste cleanup and high tech based on physics that can go save a $40 million population by removing all the radioactivity from the Fukushima disaster was to us, you know, sanctimonious and righteous as it may be, more meaningful, and add more matter.
And I think when we’re funding entrepreneurs, anytime anybody comes in and says, we want to change the world, I generally think that it’s BS. But when they come in and say like, I want to go do this thing and it has the byproduct, almost accidentally that they did it, it just feels super meaningful for them. So above the money that they’re making, it’s just a great way to attract the right people.
And so this is an area that feels like it is becoming incredibly timely.
The physical world.
The physical world is becoming timely. And you and I have talked a little bit about this. But part of what seems to be happening is that the processing power of the technology is actually not progressing to the point that we’ve moved from the relatively simple manipulation of virtual world, right? So you know, the creation of a world in which anything is possible, a Second Life, for example, where we recreate something in low resolution mode. From a technology standpoint, that’s been possible for an extended period of time.
But now, we’re actually moving to a point where we’re starting to see the technology progressed to the point that you’re manipulating things in the real world.
Yeah. So let’s look at both of those. The blurring between bits and atoms– again between the 0s and 1s, and then the physical output of those is totally happening in a rapid way. So you can take the physical world around us, and say, how are we digitizing that. Well, you’re doing 3D scanning. It used to be the 3D scanners required very sophisticated lasers. And then it turned out that there was a byproduct of video games– and I’m sure we’ll talk about this phenomenon, but lots of interesting things happen from these adjacent possibilities.

  1. These guys are so far behind the curve. CAD has been in use since the 70's for CNC manufacturing. Additive manufacturing isn't the logistics boon any more than CNC milling was. The materials and post processing are still too labor intensive. A $140,000 machine is an industrial 3d printer. There's not going to be an independent contractor operating these without other production equipment, like a turret punch. The print times aren't even addressed. Injection molding is very cheap btw. Tap handles from China come painted for $25 each. In America, with our 3d printing, milling, and educated workforce, produced the same product for $45 each. There's no way around the advantage of volume. The orders were the same number of units, 2000. Paint and cleanup were the biggest cost. Machines aren't able to do that.

  2. The "religion of science" doesn't even understand fundamental truths. It endorses theories and beliefs over using the scientific method in the field. Gravity over density+buoyancy for one. Spinning globe vs a motion-less flat plane is another. Moon landing hoax. Celebrating Einstein+Edison over Tesla. On and on. This guy is just another brain-washed indoctrinated sheeple. Thumb-down.

  3. 8:54 3D printing is great for concept stage. And it's been in use for these low quantity situations for years now. Once sb has the working design for "a hinge" they would still opt for good old-fashioned mold casting.
    This guest sounds like he's riding the height of the late 2013 3D printing bubble.
    I'm disappointed 3D printing still hasn't managed to get rid of the stair-stepping look without loss of detail, as far as I know.

  4. So evolution designed fluidity with mathematical certainty. But no designer was involved. Again evolutionary idiot
