Invention Factory: How Will The World Get Smaller?

In this episode of Invention Factory — a partnership between General Electric and Vice — we explore the future of flight. From Xcor, a company making private space travel a growing reality, to GE’s 3D printing technology that is helping to create better, smarter, faster engines–billions more people will have access to fast, affordable global travel.

In this episode, GE researchers John Deaton and Todd Wetzel explain the ways 3-D printing, or additive manufacturing, is changing the manufacturing process for jet engines and opening up the world of air travel to billions of people who have never flown before.
