This took my breath away this morning. Can you imagine the possibilities? I found it over on The Pompomist.
It is made by Porjoel Sosa and Sergio Omar Galvan who are students at UAM in Mexico. The material is 30% lighter but has the same strength, consistency and resistance as regular concrete, while allowing 80% light transmittance. It comes in a variety of colors.
The inventors are patenting the product now, so hopefully it will be available soon.
If you speak Spanish, here is a you tube video about the product that you should check out…in fact it might be worthwhile to take a look even if you don’t (a picture speaks a thousand words in any language). I love the black concrete they show in the video with the light behind it….so cool.
