Saw this write up over at Inhabitat the other day, and can’t believe that we have this kind of tech and aren’t pushing serious money behind it.

So here’s a device that can use solar power to melt sand into whatever shape it wants. What’s to say we can’t expand upon this and set-up multiple on a larger scale to churn out housing solutions after a disaster?

I think the applications for this particular technology are astounding, and I look forward to what we can create with it.
