Making the Digital House
Four years ago I wrote about what I called the holy grail of CAD-CAM, where a building is not only drawn in a computer but goes the next step, to Computer Aided Manufacturing. I showed a prototype, the Digital House 1.1 and was impressed, writing:
Imagine ordering a custom house and having it delivered in a box, opening it and connecting lightweight, manageable pieces without a crane, living in a house where the framing is furniture quality and you don't even want to cover it with drywall. This is truly the future.
Well, it's not the future, it is happening right now, and you're looking at it.
