Wait, while I print you a house

Italian inventor Enrico Dini has developed a huge 3D printer called D-Shape that can print entire buildings out of sand, The printer sprays a thin layer of sand followed by a layer of magnesium-based binder from hundreds of nozzles on its underside. The glue turns the sand to solid stone, which is built up layer-by-layer from the bottom up to form anything from a sculpture to a sandstone building. (Credit: Monolite UK Ltd.)
