New Architecture with the Mobile 3D Printing Home $10,000

A house built in 24hrs, see the video and the breakdown of the costs in the post.
Nikita Chen Yun Tai, is the inventor of the mobile printer and the founder of Apis Cor.  Unlike other 3D printers on the market, this one can be taken to site, thus eliminating the need of construction in sections off site and then having to transport the them to be assembled on site.  The house was printed within 24hrs and cost just over $10,000, the breakdown and the video below.  As with most life changing technology, there are good and bad points associate with them.  Examples of good and bad could be, imagine taking these printers to a city or town just flattened by an earthquake and on the flip side, imagine how many people will lose their jobs, overnight, once all of these processes are automated.  I don't think that problems like these should stop progress, but measures should be taken in order to offset the them.

Foundation                  $277
Walls                            $1,624
Floor and roof             $2,434
Wiring                          $242
Windows and doors     $3,548
Exterior finishing        $831
Interior finishing         $1,178

    TOTAL                     $10,134

The price includes the ceiling but not the labour costs or the cost of the printer (price on request).
