Can say an toaster, beginnning with OEM I.O.T. of subcomponents, created during a 3D maker’s creation of the bespoke said item, then be put into cloud “public ledger”, so that it can be tracked from usage manufacturing efficiency, through lifetime maintenance, usage rates, consumption habits, ultimately to recycling be data mined?
