By 2050, the human population is expected to reach 9.7 million. In effect, securing affordable and eco-friendly housing will become a forefront issue for many citizens. Fortunately, a new solution to this dilemma was recently presented, and it is literally dirt cheap.
The company WASP – also known as the World’s Advanced Saving Project – has figured out how to 3D-print full-sized homes out of nothing more than mud and clay. Whereas most building materials, such as concrete, have high-carbon footprints, these materials pose no threat to the environment.
WASP is close to finishing its first building which reaches 40-feet tall. Incredibly, it cost only $53 to make.
