This week, Divergent 3D Founder & CEO Kevin Czinger had the honor of speaking at the Singularity University Executive Program. The event gathers visionaries, entrepreneurs, and corporate executives to lead discussions on current and future technological innovations that have the potential to disrupt and transform the world as we know it. Among the key focus areas at this conference: 3D printing.
Andre Wegner, the founder and CEO of Authentise, that helps companies get their designs ready to be 3D-printed, set the stage talking about the disruptiveness of 3D printing before seguing into Divergent 3D’s technology, which he called “the most exciting thing to happen at Singularity in years.”
Kevin shared with the audience Divergent 3D’s mission to revolutionize auto manufacturing. Showcasing the Divergent Manufacturing Platform™ and our proprietary Node™ technology, Kevin explained how Divergent 3D’s innovation radically reduces the materials, energy, and costs of manufacturing. But Kevin wasn’t done just yet. In the tradition of Steve Jobs, there was “one more thing…”
To show just what was possible with Divergent 3D’s platform, Kevin took his discussion outside to let conference attendees get up close and personal with Blade, the world’s first 3D-printed supercar that is built upon Divergent 3D’s technology. Kevin took questions from the audience about Blade and attendees were invited to sit inside the supercar and experience it for themselves.
The theme of the Singularity event was “Disrupt or Be Disrupted.” Divergent 3D is proud to be in the “Disrupt” category, as we continue to strive to overhaul manufacturing from an economic, environmental, and creative standpoint. Our reception at Singularity was overwhelmingly positive and we had a great time meeting with like-minded individuals who share a common goal of developing technology to make a positive impact on the planet.
