What do autonomous vehicles, energy, and craftsmanship have in common? Industry 4.0! Brian, Joost, and Tom talk about what Industry 4.0 means for us designers. Before they converse about the implications though, they try to wrap their heads around what industry 4.0 actually is and where it might head in the future.

Here’s a short recap on the previous three industrial revolutions. The first industrial revolution happened with the invention of the Steam engine, and the mechanization that followed. Humanity then moved on towards mass production of items with production lines using electricity. The third revolution happened when computers were invented. Their invention and increasing use led to further automation and increased our production and research capabilities drastically. Now we’ve been steadily moving into Industry 4.0. What is the Designer’s role in this industry? We have some thoughts on that, but are certainly not done talking about it!
