Clever Answers - After the disaster

Looking at how small scale technologies could be scaled up. This, for example, is a 3D printer on steriods, used to (re)construct housing. The prototypes need about 20 hours to build a house - and because the plans are all software, they don't all have to be the same.

Why is this interesting? Because there are too many natural disasters where it takes much too long to reconstruct essential shelter.
