When 3D printing came on the scene, I imagined that it would be pretty useful for the custom manufacture of small items. But its applications have gone well beyond my imaginings and the latest example is the ability to build an 650 square foot house in about 12-24 hours for a cost of just $10,000. The people behind it hope to reduce the cost to around $4,000.
It was unveiled today at the SXSW conference currently being held in Austin, TX and it is hoped to use this technology to provide good quality housing to poor people in the developing world.
See how it is done.
