In the textile industry, people have been spinning and dyeing wool in their own homes for centuries.
James Hargreaves saw an opportunity. He realized there was something like a flywheel effect and developed the so-called Spinning Jenny. It is a tool that could drive eight different pivot points simultaneously.

However, they could not stop the wave of change. Look where the materials industry stands today!
History repeats itself.
