A Custom Inground Pool from a 3D Printer–The Future is Here!

A Pool — From the Printer?
From Aqua Magazine
3D printers seem to be all the rage in technology circles. The ability to literally send a physical object over space and time is something right out of Star Trek. Some people will find this difficult to believe, but the ability to actually make a custom inground swimming pool on a 3D printer is available now! This post from Aqua Magazine gives the story of an ambitious project by Architect Adam Kushner, who is not only building the swimming pool with this cutting edge technology, he is 3D printing the entire custom home!
Here is an excerpt from the post:
While people are still ogling their new iPhones and dreaming of the iWatch, there’s another technology that’s really making waves: 3-D printing. These “printers” manufacture objects through an additive process — by adding layer after layer of material, users can end up with a full-fledged 3-D object.
Creatives are taking to the technology by building just about everything you can imagine — anything from phone cases to jewelry, art and even weaponry have been printed off these machines. But architect Adam Kushner of Kushner Studios has bigger plans for the 3-D printer: He’s building an entire house, including a swimming pool, via printer.
Kushner’s project isn’t the first home to be built with a 3-D printer, but it is the first swimming pool. The project, located in Gardiner, New York, is planned to be a 2,400 square foot home with four bedrooms, as well as an inground swimming pool and pool house.
