WASP has come an impressively long way in a short span of time—they revealed their four-meter tall BigDelta prototype less than a year ago—especially considering that the company doesn’t receive any public financing.

The United Nations calculated that over the next 15 years there will be an average daily requirement of 100.000 new housing units to meet this demand.”
