Much to the chagrin of the government, we’ve seen 3D printers used to create very real and working firearms. Or for a tastier application, someone equipped one for desserts and literally printed complete cakes.
3D printing is one of those technological advancements that feels as though it is ahead of its time. It’s capabilities continue to grow swiftly in ways that leave you wildly trying to imagine what we could possibly be using it for ten years from now. With that in mind, the next step of the evolution has taken place, as Northern California start-up Apis-Cor has applied it to construction by printing an entire house. The concrete structure took only 24 hours to complete, including a bathroom, living room, and a functional but compact kitchen.
Watch the summary video below to see how they pulled this off. It’s hard to imagine a more groundbreaking technology of the last few decades than 3D printing. Let me know in the comments if you can think of one.
