Oh good grief. Here’s something that at first seems like a good development [sic], but when you see the details…
AUSTIN, Texas — A Kansas City developer has announced America’s first 3D-printed homes for sale.
3Strands is partnering with Austin-based construction technology company ICON to leverage ICON’s proprietary 3D printing construction technology, software, and advanced materials to deliver the two- to four-bedroom homes in Austin.
“We want to change the way we build, own, and how we live in community together,” says Gary O’Dell, 3Strands’ co-founder and CEO. “This project represents a big step forward, pushing the boundaries of new technologies, such as 3D-printed homes.”
Sounds perfect for a town like Austin, dunnit?
And then comes the pic of the likely dwelling:
Yikes. It looks like a prototype for a CIA detention / torture center.
Let me know when 3D printing can produce one of these, and then we could talk:
Until then, nope.
