This edition of Engineering News by NSF announces "The Most Historic Wall Since the Great Wall of China." What makes this wall original is that it was built entirely by a robot, making it "the first wall ever constructed entirely by machine, with no use of human hands." A link to a related website describes the technology used to build the wall known as Contour Crafting. Contour Crafting builds the structures layer-by-layer in a process by which structures can be "'printed out' from computer design software, much as ink jet printers produce documents from word processing software." Researchers hope that one day the technology can be used to build a 2000 square foot home in day or to construct extraterrestrial habitats.
