Let's play that forward with some of the implications and then relate it to computing and communication
What does it mean ?

Gershenfeld uses the phrase "play that forward" a couple of times. The metaphor comes from playing a tape forward. He's moving backwards and forwards in a history of computation and digital fabrication, so what he means is, let's see how these things developed. Let's continue this history from this point, or with these factors in mind, and do so in a chronologically forward direction.
