3D printing seems to be the latest “ultra cool” movement in technology. Having heard about 3D printing (not only small 3D printers), one can begin imagining how would the world look like if 3D printing will become such a common procedure like paper printing. A world full of home-made toys, utensils, dishes and God knows what else. But, what if, 3D printing could be that cool as to solve the issue of shelter across the world, what if there could be a feasible solution to 3D print houses?
Such was the idea of ContourCrafting, whose CEO had a very insightful TED talk this year (video below). Professor Behrokh Khoshnevis, from the University of Southern California is the man behind this awesome concept. In plain English, he wants to build a 3D printer that would be able of building a house in less than one day, in 20 hours!
