The Motley Fool's industrial analyst, Isaac Pino, recently attended The Atlantic magazine's Manufacturing Summit for insight into the industry and visited General Electric's (NYSE:GE) 30 Rockefeller offices for a closer look at the $250 billion conglomerate. Isaac and Motley Fool Money host Chris Hill weigh in on the company's transformation over the past few years, its game-changing investments in 3-D printing and the industrial Internet, and the opportunity ahead for GE shareholders.

In the following segment, Isaac takes a closer look at some of the technologies GE is looking at as its long bets, which could grow the business tenfold if they hit. He discusses how the company was able to do this with its energy sector and is now seeing integration of the industrial Internet at 3-D printing technology into its manufacturing sector as technologies that will have similar multiplicative effects.
