The United Nations projects that by 2050, there will be 9.2 billion humans on earth. To solve the impending predicament of where we are going to house all those people, USC professor Behrokh Khoshnevis has come up with the concept for a massive 3D printer capable of creating an entire 2,500 square foot home––in just 24 hours.

Professor Khoshnevis designed a printer with two crane-like arms and a crossbeam to hold a printhead that dispenses super quick drying cement. Though the printer could create the structure of a home, construction workers would still be needed to prep the space, lay down foundation, install window head jambs, and insert a metal ceiling between the floors, along with other finishing touches.

Can you imagine building your dream home in a single day?
