Chris Anderson new CEO of 3D Robotics

TechCrunch reports that Chris Anderson, editor-in-chief at Wired magazine, plans to shift his full-time attention to taking over as CEO of 3D Robotics, a company he co-founded several years back that makes do-it-yourself drones aimed at the mass market. He’ll be staying at Wired until the magazine finds a replacement.
In his new book,  Makers: The New Industrial Revolution, he reveals a new industrial revolution with entrepreneurs, using open source design and 3-D printing, to bring manufacturing to the desktop. In an age of custom-fabricated, DIY- product design and creation, the collective potential of a million garage tinkerers and enthusiasts is about to be unleashed, driving a resurgence of American manufacturing. A generation of “Makers” using the Web’s innovation model will help drive the next big wave in the global economy, as the new technologies of digital design and rapid prototyping gives everyone the power to invent -- creating “the long tail of things”.
