3D printers are not a new invention though. They have been around since the 80s. However, their demand exploded in the last decade thanks to the advances in technology and aggressive investments in R&D. All these developments made ‘desktop-sized’ 3D printers a real possibility.

3. Minimalism: a documentary about the important things

Yet for status reasons, we keep on buying stupid stuff. Actually, we not only buy new stuff, but we also hang on to the old stuff, resulting in a major hoarding probelm. I am sure a lot of you reading this are nodding your heads yes.

Minimalism centres around Ryan Nicodemus and Joshua Fields Millburn. The duo has come to be known as The Minimalists since and they advocate less is more lifestyle.
