Human beings, you're an amazing thing - reaching new heights with a new advancement in 3D printing. 3D printers will soon be printing massive 2,500 square feet houses in less than 24 hours.

 

 

Behrokh Khoshnevis, a professor of Industrial & Systems Engineering at the University of Southern California (USC) has demonstrated automated construction, where 3D printers are used to build an entire house in under 20 hours. Automated construction is a beautiful thing, with the 3D printer itself being large enough to construct walls by depositing concrete-based material layer-upon-layer to build a wall.

This is just super impressive, and I'm looking forward to this tech being rolled out across the developing nations.
