In the latest episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians, Kanye said: "This is what I'm afraid of right here, 3D printing. Because the Internet destroyed the music industry and now this is what we're afraid of right now with the textile industry. There will come a time where people are making the shoes at home".

 

Kayne visited the Tumo Center for Creative Technologies in Armenia in the latest episode, which is where the quote came from, as well as Kanye adding that he "likes robots", but he doesn't like all robots. If Kayne is elected president, you can be sure 3D printers will most likely be banned under a new Executive Order.
