Video: 3D-printed house, car work together to create energy

Engineers at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory have developed a 3D-printed building, which is run on solar power, and a hybrid electric/natural-gas-powered car that work together to create energy. Energy can flow between the car and the building with wireless technology. “Working together, we designed a building that innovates construction and building practices and a vehicle with a long enough range to serve as a primary power source,” said the lab’s Roderick Jackson, who led the project.
