The Contour Crafting appliance that makes your home



Going one step beyond designing a house for your virtual reality avatar to live in, Contour Crafting lets you develop a virtual version of your house, then hire a robot to build the shell in 24 hours. It uses a lot of ceramics, which not only will reduce problems with offgassing and termites and dust mites, but let you feel like you’re living in a giant, pleasantly-warmed teapot. (If living in giant teapot is your thing; realistically it’d let you have any kind of house you want without worrying about the construction guys snickering that you want the loo covered with swarovski crystals or your bed stuck to the ceiling.)
