by David | October 28, 2011
We are proud to announce that our mother company Materialise will be featured in an upcoming episode of ‘Brave New World with Stephen Hawking’, a Channel 4 documentary series during which “Professor Stephen Hawking examines how science is striving for humankind”s next leap forward”. So, for those of you who are living in the UK, be sure to set your DVRs because you will not want to miss a minute of this show. The episode will air on Monday the 31st of October at 8pm on Channel 4. Although airing on Halloween, we promise you that the only thing scary about the show is how much further technology has come than many expect.
Filming took place at Materialise’s Belgian Headquarters earlier in the year and we are excited to finally see the result of what proved to be an exciting day of shooting. Materialise is being featured in the third episode of the series entitled: Technology. It will be designer Max Lamb who will guide viewers through the world of 3D printing and who will give you a glimpse of what is happening here at Materialise. Also featured in this episode will be how mobile phones can give experts access to our every habit and action, experimental cities in which citizens get around in unmanned cars, spaceship factories, and more.
