Technology is advancing at such a rapid rate that sometimes it seems that what we are seeing is unreal. One such latest advancement is concrete canvasa material that has all the elements of concrete, but is flexible enough to be turned into any shape.
Concrete canvas when submerged in water and given time to set can turn into completely solid. Implications of this technology are far reaching. This technology allows people to erect permanent structures in a fraction of the time needed for traditional building techniques.
The inspiration for concrete canvas came for plastic casts wrapped around broken bone in hospitals. The concrete canvas buildings can come in handy at the time of humanitarian crises. Such buildings are strong enough to stand on and you can also hammer a nail into them.
