  2. WaitLess wants you to never have to line up for anything again

    The many companies vying to be the "Uber of X" are not just trying to find a sector of the real world left to disrupt. They are trying to find an inefficiency that bedevils us on a regular basis. It's hard to think of something more common, basic, and annoying than waiting in line.

  6. Breaking out of its rut, 3D printing shows its medical side

    The 3D printing market is in a holding pattern. The technology has great potential, but only a few trained people are able to unlock it. There’s a lot of excitement about what the technology could do 20 years from now, but a similar level of grumbling that the hype has created a bubble. Insiders liken it to the PC industry in the 1980s, but people are impatient for it to change the world now. Maybe - as predicted - in 2030 there will be a $30 billion industry printing our clothes, shoes, and those little doohickeys that hold up your pictures on the wall. But there will be many years in the interim, which will be filled with speculation among warring camps of skeptics and evangelists about just how transformative it will become.
