"The concept and meaning of plastics has been changing dramatically. It still has kind of a notorious layer of concept: very disposable and one-time-use only, very non-environmentally-friendly materials....By having digital technology, it is very compact, light-weight, ubiquitous material that is actually [durable] and very personalized product. So that means this product becomes very elegant, very high-quality and very sophisticated with multi-layered materials....a high manufactured component."
