Dave - brilliant food for thought (and I do like your view on low cost being north of $1m!). I think we are now at the inkjet is no longer a deep form of magic stage - its just another method of printing. The capability to put print engines into production lines is improving its manufacturing cost position hugely and allowing pioneers to radically improve overall cost, reduce time and tick sustainability boxes. Outside of graphics and packaging there is real innovation too. Next drupa will show a lot more as well - I reckon we've passed the Gartner "Trough of despair" and are accelerating ahead.
