3D Printed, Life-Sized Sand Castles Could Be The Mobile Homes Of The Future [Pics]
These compact structures could lead to a new industrial revolution.
No day at the beach is complete without some attempt at building a sand castle, but have you ever dreamed of living in one? Thanks to a talented group of students at UCLA you now can.
Peter Ebner, architect and professor at 3M futureLAB, gave his architecture students a difficult assignment with the hope of preparing them for the future of 3D printing: build a tiny, easily transportable 3D printed apartment. In response, they created miniature mobile homes constructed out of a mixture of sand and glue.
