3-D Print your house

Someday in the not so distant future, you'll design your house on a CAD program and send it to a contractor who will download it into a large 3-D printer. That big old printer will then build your house from the foundation up out of concrete or a similar building material in a matter of days (rather than weeks) at about a fifth of the cost.

Read about it and see more videos of the process at Contour Crafting. (I think the YouTube video below is a compilation of all the videos from the site.)
