MIT Creates 3D-Printing Robot That Can Construct a Home Off-Grid In 14 Hours

Kristine Lofgren writes: Home building hasn’t changed much over the years, but leave it to MIT to take things to the next level. A new technology built at MIT can construct a simple dome structure in 14 hours and it’s powered by solar panels, so you can take it to remote areas. MIT’s 3D-printing robot can construct the entire basic structure of a building and can be customized to fit the local terrain in ways that traditional methods can’t do. It even has a built-in scoop so it can prepare the building site and gather its own construction materials. You can watch a video of the 3D-printing robot in action here.
