Nick Spence of MacWeek quotes Autodesk's Carl Bass as saying, "Very soon, users will be able to sit with an iPad at home and make a movie like Avatar."
Bass added that a combination of cloud computing and 3D printers* could see home users creating products at home, with designs being produced and made available to all.
Do you think his like-Avatar claim is realistic? After all, it is remarkable what phones with Android and iOS are able to do now. Or is his statement mere marketing hype, in the line of former Autodesk-ceo Carol Bartz's claim that anything not designed by God had been designed with Autodesk software?
