3D Printed Houses
Every so often a new technology comes along that drastically changes society. One that can be used for such a wide variety of purposes that nearly every corner of society is changed either directly or indirectly. We’ve seen this recently with computers, the internet and wireless technology and not so long ago with television, radio, records, cars, planes and telephones. It’s starting to look like 3D printers are going to be the next big thing.
I’ve been fascinated with them since I first heard about them about four or five years ago but for some reason it was only recently that I first heard about 3D printed houses. A bit of time on the search engines will show you various methods that are in the works. All of them still in a crude and not market ready stage but the concept is so full of potential that I would be surprised if it hasn’t refined itself and started to catch on in 20 years. Time will tell.
For those of you who haven’t seen it yet, here are some videos on the topic.
