Non-profit organization New Story partnered with construction technologies company ICON to create a 3D printer capable of printing an up to 800-square-foot house in less than a day. The mobile printer, called 'Vulcan,' is designed to function even with unstable electricity or limited access to water resources.

The two companies believe that the final cost of each unit will be under $4,000 — which will be covered by donations handled by New Story in its fight to tackle global homelessness.
