This beautiful machine literally uses the raw power of the sun to turn sand, an abundant resource, into glass. In a world where energy consumption is becoming a main concern this technology explores the potential of “desert manufacturing”. This technology is taking us into the next step of utilizing the suns potential to its fullest. Imagine this machine scaled up 100x to “print” houses in the middle of the desert. Perhaps when we terraform Mars our colonists will be living in glass structures.
