This Sturdy Residential House Was 3D Printed In Only 24 Hours For Less Than $11,000

This tech could revolutionize the construction industry as we know it.

Building a house usually requires a lot of time and money. It often takes months to finish and you, the house owner, can expect to spend big bucks until the project gets completed.

That’s why we are absolutely mind-blown when we heard about this news circulating on our feeds recently.

According to online reports, Apis Cor, a company based in San Francisco, managed to build a house in just 24 hours.

The Apis Cor’s website claims they are the “first company to develop a mobile construction 3D printer which is capable of printing whole buildings completely on site.”

The residential home was erected in Russia and it measures 400 square foot.

Although it only took a day to construct the residential house from a concrete mixture, it is sturdy enough that the company says that it will last for up to 175 years.


The best part of all, however, is the fact that the entire 3D printed house only costs less than $11,000!

Now just imagine the possibilities…

Scientists Create ‘Aquaman Crystal,’ Which Can Help People Breathe Underwater

Not only would it help divers but also patients of lung disorders.

Most people are easily fascinated by the idea of going deep sea diving, being able to go underwater and marvel at nature’s wonderful creations. However, not all people are brave enough to put on those heavy oxygen tanks and other diving gear just to experience a magical underwater adventure. Fortunately, there is a possibility that diving equipment may not be needed after all – thanks to a group of scientists.

Researchers at the University of Southern Denmark, along with the University of Sydney in Australia, have created a material called the Aquaman Crystal. This material can absorb oxygen in a room and store it in high concentrations. What this means for divers is that there is no need to carry bulky oxygen tanks during deep sea explorations.

Professor Christine McKenzie of the University of Southern Denmark said in a statement:...

Aptly named BeauEr '3X,' this caravan expands 3 times its original size in 20 seconds. It measures 8.5 feet long and 6 feet wide, designed to the size of a towed vehicle when on the road.. ...
