3D Printed Homes

Every once in a while, you hear a really cool story that you just have to share. As a heads up, I found this story on Digital Trends, so check out their article to learn more. Here's the gist. Startup Icon teamed up with nonprofit New Story to create 3D printed homes. Starting development in El Salvador, these homes are created in hopes to create more affordable housing. The houses are printed on site using a special, supersized 3D printer and their custom material, called Lavacrete. The houses are printed where they will stand and are structurally sound. Check out the video below to see it in action. It is truly amazing to see.
