  1. Dan: this is intriguing. At first I thought it was theoretical but seeing the concrete precast parts is exciting. Makes me want to find a way to build a building out this stuff. Thanks for sharing this stuff. keep it up!

  2. wait a second. Now i just saw the movie. This is amazing. the applications for third world situations is compelling. The ship-ability (is that a word?) is powerful. We’ve seen situations in the former Soviet satellite states that are desperate for simple, scalable solutions like this. We’ll be sharing this with our friends at World Vision and Habitat for Humanity. Thanks. JT
