"Big Bang Disruptors" can virtually devastate a business overnight through faster, cheaper and superior technology and that is exactly what 3D printers are doing, says Larry Downes, author of "Big Bang Disruption". As evidenced by the showing at this year's CES the price of 3D printers is coming down and the performance is going up. And for those wondering how to judge whether a company is a Big Bang Disruptor, Downes says look no further than Amazon due to its culture of innovation and undermining its own success.
