In the future, 3D printers will help architects quickly build efficient mass housing projects from recycled materials, effectively solving the worldwide housing crisis while reducing the industry's dependency on raw materials — of course, that idealistic vision at this point remains light years away.

Dock at the World's First 3D-Printed House

A bold group of Dutch architects, however, have decided to bring this utopian future a little closer. DUS Architects have commenced building an experimental 3D house along a canal in Amsterdam. And, now you can go watch 3D materials slowly coagulated into a house! Add To Collection Save this image to a collection To build the 3D Print Canal House, DUS purchased a shipping container on the internet, and transformed it into a giant 3D printer with the help of printer experts.

DUS was already printing with smaller printers, but saw the opportunity to create unique buildings from recycled plastics and other materials by scaling the size appropriately.

Grow 100 Pounds of Potatoes in 4 Sq Feet

They're fairly low maintenance, can be grown in a pot or in the ground, last a fairly long time if stored properly, and can be very nutritious (high in potassium and vitamin C). Here's more incentive: according to this article, you can grow 100 pounds of potatoes in 4 sq. feet. Learn how after the jump...

Workhouse International Ceramic Cup Show 2014 Drink This! 2014 showcases ceramic drinking vessels by contemporary artists around the globe. The focus of the exhibit is on the variety of ways artists explore the cup, in functional, sculptural, traditional and non-traditional forms. Thank you! Pam Eisenmann- Co-CuratorJoan Ulrich- Co-CuratorDale Marhanka-Ceramics Director Cups are probably one of the most unassuming, yet challenging forms to make. Potters seem to be quite particular about what they like about cups and why. I was so inspired to see such a diverse range of cup forms, surfaces, decoration and building processes.

Nanoscribe Will Sell a Micro 3-D Printer That Creates Tiny Structures in Seconds. Nanoscribe, a spin-off from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany, has developed a tabletop 3-D microprinter that can create complicated microstructures 100 times faster than is possible today.

Nanoscribe Will Sell a Micro 3-D Printer That Creates Tiny Structures in Seconds

“If something took one hour to make, it now takes less than one minute,” says Michael Thiel, chief scientific officer at Nanoscribe. While 3-D printing of toys, iPhone covers, and jewelry continues to grab headlines (see “The Difference Between Makers and Manufacturers”), much of 3-D printing’s impact could be at a much smaller scale. Micrometer-scale printing has shown promise for making medical and electronic devices. Thiel says it should be possible to speed up his company’s microprinting technique even more in the future. Nanoscribe plans to start selling its machine in the second half of this year. The Printer That Can Print A 2,500 Square Foot House In 20 Hours. We have seen huge advancements in 3D printing.

We’ve even seen oversized wrenches printed that measure 1.2 meters in length. Now, we can print an entire 2,500 sqft house in 20 hours. In the TED Talk video below, Behrokh Khoshnevis, a professor of Industrial & Systems Engineering at the University of Southern California (USC), demonstrates automated construction, using 3D printers to build an entire house in 20 hours.

The series then took an enormous leap forward during the midseason finale, time-jumping to a new era in its characters’ lives. In the midseason premiere at a new night and time (Wednesdays at 9 E/P), Ragnar’s reappearance in Kattegat triggers a chain of events no one – except the Seer – could have ever imagined. He unexpectedly arrives home to see what has become of his sons, and to handle unfinished business in Wessex with King Ecbert (Linus Roache). Winnipeg jets. F.C.

Deep Watering Tomatoes for a Bumper Crop. As the plant that often seems to be the central highlight of the summer gardening season for most folks, everyone wants the biggest and shiniest tomatoes possible.

Deep Watering Tomatoes for a Bumper Crop

So there are no shortage of tips and tricks out there to develop the size and sheen of tomatoes. But most of these tips and tricks only slightly improve the plant's production, many of them seeming to do nothing at all - mental bias and imagination can go a long way in supporting useless tricks. Well, here's one method that the people who try it have a hard time not noticing a difference in their plants. And by difference, I mean tomatoes taken to the next level. It's called "deep watering", and it is exactly what it describes, watering deeper in the soil. Now why would you want to water deeper in the first place? Not to forget, there's also the added benefits of being very water efficient as well as reducing blight because water won't be splashing all over the plant.
