The most hyped technologies in the world

A staff of Nihonbinary shows an Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene pylon which is printed by the 3D printer MakerBot Replicator 2X during the International Robot Exhibition 2013 in Tokyo November 8, 2013. Japanese entrepreneurs are building businesses based on 3D printing, showing the sort of pioneering spirit Prime Minister Shinzo Abe hopes can revitalise a calcified economy.
