Wait till you see this house, it only takes 1 day to "build" with a 3D printer

Technology yet again is coming to our aid, this 400 foot squared house can be built almost anywhere in a day, and costs only £8,000.

At £20 per square foot, this mini-house seems almost too good to be true, but Russian company Apis Cor has done it, 3D printing this house in only 1 day.

To print the house a massive crane like 3D printer is used. With a nearly 30 foot arm, and 10 foot high, is can turn 360 degrees. It is perfectly suited for constructing circular houses at very affordable prices.

The device "prints" layers of cement that are used to construct the outline and walls. Currently work such as insulating and painting is still done the old fashioned way, by people, but it is envisioned that the whole package will become automated in the future.

In addition to economy, and speed, there is also the simplicity of logistics. All that is needed is a lorry to carry the printer and materials to the desired location.

Already many big name companies are expressing interest as partners, names such as PIK, Samsung, TechnoNICOL, Bitex Reibeputz, and Fabrika Okon, amongst others.

The houses may seem small at the moment, but at that price, would you be interested in a mini-home without a mortgage, and ready to decorate in one day?
