I dont think the construction hurdles are significant compared to other technologies that are already out there, says Carl Brockmeyer, Oerlikons head of business development. From a technical point of view, its not a challenge. We are used to much higher and harsher applications.

This is one of the small number of ideas to come out of the tech industry which actually might improve civilization substantially.

It's also a rare example of something we could do which requires few to no ancillary innovations, and is doable with existing technology.

The Housing Trap
You're being set up to spend your life paying off a debt you don't need to take on, for a house that costs far more than it should. The conspirators are all around you, smiling to lure you in, carefully choosing their words and watching your reactions as they push your buttons, anxiously waiting for the moment when you sign the papers that will trap you and guarantee their payoff. Don't be just another victim of the housing market. Use this book to defend your freedom and defeat their schemes. You can win the game, but first you have to learn how to play it.
