London, May 12 (ANI): Soon, shoppers would not be running around from one shop to another in search of gadgets of their choice, for the experts believe that they would soon “grow” their own gadgets.

Experts have predicted that with the pace of technological advancement, it would go up to such a level where people would be able to develop their own gadgets including washing machines and hair dryers within the next 75 years, reports the Telegraph.

The experts from The Future Laboratory predicts that the technique will evolve within 75 years from a practice already used today, known as rapid prototyping.

People would pick their own design and then watch, as it is built, piece-by-piece.

The process, called rapid manufacturing, will allow people to choose the look of white goods ranging from kitchen appliances to electric toothbrushes. (ANI)
