Yeah that was the project, I'm really eager to see this get going. Think of
the impact something like this could have (once it's adopted of course) for
groups like habitat for humanity, and implications in 3rd world countries,
or in areas recovering from a natural disaster. Cheap abundant plywood and
some bolts and a bunch of people with no real special expertise (and a CNC)
and you can mass produce buildings/shelters/storage or even homes...
(I mean yeah you still have to insulate, wire, and plumb them, but the idea
is still fantastic).
