The emergence of cyber-physical systems makes radical new products and systems possible. Throughout the design, manufacturing, use, maintenance, and end-of-life stages, digital aspects (sensing, inferencing, connectedness) influence the physical, and vice versa (digital fabrication, robotics). A key takeaway is that such innovations can augment human capabilities, to extend our mental and physical skills with computational and robotic support. Furthermore, agile development methods, complemented by mixed-reality systems and 3D-printing systems, enable us to create and adapt such systems on the fly, with almost instant turnaround times.
