- Designed by WASP (World’s Advanced Saving Project) and deployed recently at a maker fair in Rome, the Delta device itself is lightweight and can be loaded onto a truck, moved then rebuilt in a matter of hours.
- Structurally, the system employs curved walls, arches and domes to create solid buildings that can withstand the test of time. For its source material: dirt, clay and water are fed into the machine, leaving the results to dry naturally in the sun. Other substances like wool can be added to help bind the solution.
- As for future endeavors: “the company is in the process of exploring 3D printing implantable ceramics, such as hydroxylapatite, bioglass and aluminium oxide, to create bone implants with the same porous structure as natural bone.”
