Inpossible, the concrete wont be ready. Plus, the process of building a house is so buerocratic, that half the time you're building a house, you are just sitting around waiting for an inspector to come look at it.

Good for you. Have a cookie.


But really... there's no cookie. And if there was, you wouldn't get one.

I don't see where they mentioned concrete, hell, every day something new is invented, it could be some sort of mystery substance...


EDIT: 200 years ago people thought flying was impossible...

If you build a house without concrete, when it rains you're house will slowly dip to one side and sink into the ground. In almost every house there is a big board that runs across called a header that runs straight down the middle of your house. You can locate this because it is often that thing on the ceiling that seperates maybe a room or 2 in your bottom floor. If you have a poor foundation... or even worse, NO foundation you will notice cracking in the drywall their most likely, and probably on your ceiling. A house with NO foundation is not structurely sound.

Either way, that's not really the idea, it would be useful for emergency shelters, 200 years ago people didn't think a plane dealy would be possible, now look at the world...

It's just really cool that they have a robot that can do this kind of stuff...all I'm trying to say.

wow im a construction major in college this is shitty news for me. if they can do this today in 10 years there may be no need for us

Yeah but CORT has a point, concrete wouldn't set that fast unless they invented some super-chemical. If this worked their would be no need for people to build emergency shelters, they'd just send a robot to do it.

i think it's pretty damn cool. and why does it have to be made of concrete at all? the foundations were evidently made from a different material than the walls so i'd expect it's a faster drying substitute. anyone else notice that there were no stairs to the first floor?

read about this in the paper a while ago. sounds like a good plan to me, but the machine thing that builds the house must be friggin' enormous :\
