Here is an opportunity for fellow artisans, engineers, mechanics and manufacturers, among others, to generate a conversation. It could be a philosophical one where talk revolves around how it makes a person feel to always be in control of the devices he is using. That is what semi-automatic makes possible. It is never fully automatic. It is manually powered, allowing the user to decide how the machine or device must operate and in which direction or motion.
This short narrative leads all users onto the more practical discussions on how they believe their semi-automatic machinery and tools must operate. This discussion, if it is allowed to continue for a while, will lead all artisans, engineers, designers and manufacturers to their semi-automatic machinery manufacturer. In fact, before new customers are introduced to the manufacturer, they should be meeting the designer.
Designers and manufacturers need to have an acute understanding of what their clients go through each and every day. And they will have an appreciation of what it means to need to stay competitive and viable. One influencing factor perhaps is the drive towards uniqueness. Create something original and the world listens and watches. Human nature is curious in that way. While complacency allows folks to continue enjoying their everyday items and apparatus, they will pounce at the opportunity to test out something new that hits their market.
This is made possible by way of the search for independence and innovation that goes into creating custom designed semi (not fully) automatic machinery. Having semiautomatic devices always allows its users to have full control over the work before him. He is still crafting by hand while making things to order. Any thoughts on having the use of semiautomatic machinery?
