German Foreign Minister Visits Georgia Tech

Frank-Walter Steinmeier, German Foreign Minister, visited Georgia Tech today to check out the additive mfg lab, direct digital mfg lab, factory information systems lab, micromachining lab, flexible machining cell, and magic cranes. All of this was new(s) to me too, of course, and quite fascinating, and colleague Jan Uelzemann and I (somehow exuding "Germanity") got a handshake from Steinmeier toward the end. His entourage included reps from all major German news media, including the German TV channel, ARD.
