This is definitely a RAVE:
A University of Southern California professor devised a layered fabrication method he calls Contour Crafting that he believes could be used to print entire buildings.
Professor Khoshnevis isn’t the first person to suggest 3-D printing structures like this, but his method is novel in that it would also add plumbing, electrical wiring, and other infrastructure as the structure is built, layer by layer, from the ground up. The technology could be used for rapidly-deployable emergency housing, he says, but could someday also be used to generate luxury, built-to-spec homes.
