Jay Rogers, CEO and co-founder of Local Motors, the game-changing technology company responsible for the first 3D-printed vehicle, has been confirmed as the keynote speaker of the 2015 ‘Fuels and Lubricants Week’ in Singapore.
“A history-making innovation, 3D auto printing paves the way for direct digital manufacturing to significantly provide fast and innovative sustainability solutions to the automotive industry,” F&L Asia, the company behind the event, said in a recent statement.
“Jay Rogers is certainly not one to shy from shaking the status quo and delivering manufacturers and consumers alike a new and more immediate experience.”
Local Motors developed the world’s first open-source automobile, the Rally Fighter. In the past year, the company has harnessed open-source design and 3D printing to design and build the world’s first 3D-printed car, called the Strati.
Rogers will be speaking on the development, production and unveiling of the Strati, which took its first drive on 13 September 2014.
Rogers’ keynote presentation on 3D printing will be featured at F&L Week 2015, which will be held on 10th-13th March 2015 at the Pan Pacific Hotel in the Marina Bay area in Singapore, site of Formula One's only night street-race.
