This cheap 3D-printed home is a start for the 1 billion who lack shelter
It’s almost cliché that tech innovations happen in the high-end, for-profit segment long before they filter down to the masses, where innovation could serve the greatest social good. ICON and New Story are challenging that premise...

ICON 3D-Printed House
You can 3D print just about anything these days and now you can add a house to the list. The first of its kind, the Icon 3D-Printed House was spawned from the desire to provide shelter for the 1 billion people on the planet that don't have a place to call home.

While the main goal is to help solve the global housing crisis, they also plan to use local labor, creating jobs in the process.

The Quest to Bring 3d-Printed Homes to the Developing World

Today, the companies are showing off the fruits of their labor: an 800-square-foot structure in Austin, Texas, and the first 3-D printed house in the country built to local housing code....
