Contour Crafting

Robot-built housing is coming. The first to be built is by Behrokh Khoshnevis at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, who will soon unleash his $1.5 million robot. It will be able to build curves and domes as easily as straight walls. This robot system is "a fabrication process by which large-scale parts can be fabricated quickly in a layer-by-layer fashion." It combines ancient surface forming concepts with modern robotics technology. The researchers in Los Angeles claim their robot will be able to build the shell of a house in 24 hours. "Compared to a conventional house, the speed of construction will be increased 200-fold and the building costs will be reduced to a fifth of what they are today," said Khoshnevis.
