'Printing' Houses, Layer by Layer

This sounds rad:

A robot for “printing” houses is to be trialled by the construction industry. It takes instructions directly from an architect’s computerised drawings and then squirts successive layers of concrete on top of one other to build up vertical walls and domed roofs.

It’d be like a mud hut for the 21st century. A really, umm, laborious and complicated mud hut. But it could have weird, curvy walls!
