Actually, this little gizmo spat out ten of them onto a block of land in China in under twnety-four hours. Watch this video to see how it is done. According to Mashable:
WinSun Decoration Design Engineering built the houses in Shanghai using four giant 3D printers, which are each 10 meters (33 feet) wide and 6.6 meters (22 feet) high, according to Chinese news agency Xinhua. They produce a mix of cement and construction waste to construct the walls layer by layer, a process much like how a baker might ice a cake.
“We purchased parts for the printer overseas, and assembled the machine in a factory in Suzhou,” WinSun CEO Ma Yihe told the International Business Times. “Such a new type of 3D-printed structure is environment-friendly and cost-effective.”
Oh, brave new world that has such printers in it.
