The Internet - The first Worldwide Tool of Unification ("The End of History")

" ... Now I give you something that few think about: What do you think the Internet is all about, historically? Citizens of all the countries on Earth can talk to one another without electronic borders. The young people of those nations can all see each other, talk to each other, and express opinions. No matter what the country does to suppress it, they're doing it anyway. They are putting together a network of consciousness, of oneness, a multicultural consciousness. It's here to stay. It's part of the new energy. The young people know it and are leading the way.... "

" ... I gave you a prophecy more than 10 years ago. I told you there would come a day when everyone could talk to everyone and, therefore, there could be no conspiracy. For conspiracy depends on separation and secrecy - something hiding in the dark that only a few know about. Seen the news lately? What is happening? Could it be that there is a new paradigm happening that seems to go against history?... " Read More …. "The End of History"- Nov 20, 2010 (Kryon channelled by Lee Carroll)

“…5 - Integrity That May Surprise…

Have you seen innovation and invention in the past decade that required thinking out of the box of an old reality? Indeed, you have. I can't tell you what's coming, because you haven't thought of it yet! But the potentials of it are looming large. Let me give you an example, Let us say that 20 years ago, you predicted that there would be something called the Internet on a device you don't really have yet using technology that you can't imagine. You will have full libraries, buildings filled with books, in your hand - a worldwide encyclopedia of everything knowable, with the ability to look it up instantly! Not only that, but that look-up service isn't going to cost a penny! You can call friends and see them on a video screen, and it won't cost a penny! No matter how long you use this service and to what depth you use it, the service itself will be free.

Now, anyone listening to you back then would perhaps have said, "Even if we can believe the technological part, which we think is impossible, everything costs something. There has to be a charge for it! Otherwise, how would they stay in business?" The answer is this: With new invention comes new paradigms of business. You don't know what you don't know, so don't decide in advance what you think is coming based on an old energy world. ..."

Kinpo unveils US$499 3D printer

A local Taiwanese electronics conglomerate Kinpo Group unveiled Monday a three-dimensional printer priced as low as US$499 to tap into what it calls a promising industry.

The 3D printer dubbed the da Vinci will carry the brand name of XYZprinting, a joint venture by two Kinpo subsidiaries: Kinpo Electronics and Cal-Comp Electronics and Communications.

Other brands' products using the same fused filament fabrication printing technology are currently priced at between NT$42,000 and NT$66,000 (US$1,400-$2,200).

XYZprinting is ready to take online pre-orders for the new printer in September and to display the machine in stores of Vibo Telecom, another Kinpo subsidiary, while actual sales will begin in Taiwan and China in December, said XYZprinting chairman Simon Shen.

XYZprinting has set its global sales target of 3D printers at 1 million units over the coming three years, as the company plans to expand its distribution networks to the United States, Japan and Europe in the first quarter of 2014 by partnering with online stores and retailers there, he said.

"3D printers are not almighty, but we believe that this technology will gradually replace people's day-to-day household item purchases," Shen said at a press conference to launch the new printer, adding that mid-range and high-end models are scheduled to be unveiled next year.

However, XYZprinting is not expected to turn a profit with its 3D printers during the coming one-and-a-half years until the new technology gains more consumer traction, said Rock Hsu, chairman of the Kinpo Group, which owns the world's number two contract notebook maker, Compal Electronics.

3D printing is a process of making a three-dimensional solid objects of virtually any shape from a digital model.

3D printing is already changing the design, prototyping and manufacturing processes in a wide range of industries, according to a report by market research firm Gartner.

Enterprises should start experimenting with the technology to improve traditional product design and prototyping, as industrial 3D printers will soon be available for under US$2,000, the report said.

The technology will also become available to consumers via kiosks or print-shop-style services, creating new opportunities for retailers and other businesses, the report said.

"3D printing is a technology accelerating to mainstream adoption," said Pete Basiliere, a research director at Gartner. "It is a technology of great interest to the general media, with demonstrations on science shows, on gadget websites and in other areas."

"We see 3D printing as a tool for empowerment, already enabling life-changing parts and products to be built in struggling countries, helping rebuild crisis-hit areas and leading to the democratization of manufacturing," the analyst said.
