About the book

Designing Reality: How to Survive and Thrive in the Third Digital Revolution focuses on the underlying principles of digital fabrication and its revolutionary potential to transform society. It brings the perspectives of science, technology, social science, and humanities to the third digital revolution through three brothers who are not only observers of the revolution, but also active participants in helping guide it.
