Nearly one billion people around the globe are homeless or live in substandard housing. In the era of 3D printing, some have addressed this crisis through quickly built concrete buildings. While this method would create a secure dwelling, delivering the raw materials and bulky printer increases the cost significantly, reducing its feasibility. The Italian 3D printing company WASP may have solved this problem by developing an easily-transportable machine that can quickly create dwellings out of mud and natural fibers—materials already available where the houses will be built.

Joseph Whitaker School pupils' car to attempt speed record
A team of schoolchildren has been conducting final tests for a world record attempt involving a rocket-powered model car.
School boffins smash land speed record – for model cars
Watch out, Andy Green!
THEY’RE PROBABLY the only cars capable of giving land speed record holder Andy Green sleepless nights. A team of talented schoolkids smashed a land speed record not once, but twice in the same weekend when their rocket-powered model cars achieved, first, 478.1mph, and then 556.28mph.
Led by proud teacher Phil Worsley, the students, members of the young engineers club at Joseph Whitaker School in Rainworth, Nottinghamshire, shredded the existing record of 287mph set in 2011 when they put three model cars through their paces at Rolls-Royce’s test track at nearby Hucknall last weekend.

Nixie: A Tiny Flying Camera Drone You Wear On Your Wrist
If the idea of a wearable camera drone seems downright strange to you, you’re probably not alone, but a new wrist-mounted flying concept camera called the Nixie makes this strange idea seem both possible and completely logical.
Nixie was born as part of Intel’s Make it Wearable (MIW) Challenge, a competition that seeks to push wearable technology to new and more creative heights — and judging by Nixie, one of the finalists, it’s succeeding.
Like a camera watch with propellers, Nixie (in theory) could detach itself from you with the flick of a wrist, fly a few feet away, take your picture (or a panorama or a movie), and then return to your wrist in something resembling a gadget you might have seen in Minority Report.
