Default CNC Concrete Extrusions

An interesting article about building houses on site using extruded concrete. It looks like it works kind of like 3D lithographic rapid prototyping, only using concrete, and really big.

The important thing here is to remember to design the bass horns into the walls before construction is started.

I lifted the story from this slashdot article:

Ok, this does seem like an intresting way of building a house, but it doesn't mention in the article how much preperation of the site is needed before you can move the gantry and robot in to start building. Are we to assume that it will simply deposite teh building on the ground without any foundations and hope it doesn't slide off? or am I missing someting from the article here?

Anyway, it still could be intresting, but I would think it needs a littel more development, before we see one down at the tool section of the local home deppot.

(and yes, I did see you were upset no-one had replied yet)
