1. Dracula

It’s impossible to list the best Netflix horror shows without talking about this classic story based on the 1897 novel by Bram Stoker. The series stars Danish actor Claes Bang as Count Dracula and British actress and writer Dolly Wells as Sister Agatha Van Helsing. Just as one can expect with a material featuring the archetypal vampire character, expect much gore from this series. The strong female characters provide an excellent balance to the plot.

2. Dark

You can’t get any darker than a series called Dark. This German horror-cum-science fiction thriller revolves around the events following the disappearance of a child. The plot exposes the hidden connections and secrets of four families that unravel a sinister time travel conspiracy. Aside from its creepy storytelling, the series is praised for its sci-fi noir style and artistic cinematography.

3. Hannibal

Fans of Thomas Harris’ suspense novel series, Dragon, Hannibal, and Hannibal Rising, are sure to get a kick out of this program. The TV show premiered in 2013 on NBC and starred Mads Mikkelsen as Dr. Hannibal Lecter. Fans praise the show for its top-notch acting and the sleek but grotesque depiction of Dr. Lecter’s cannibalistic nature.

4. The Haunting of Hill House

This series got a lot of attention when it first came out in 2018. Loosely based on the 1959 novel of the same name by Shirley Jackson, the series holds up on its own. The story features five siblings in two timelines – one when they were kids and the other, during the present time. The freaky events in the past continue to haunt the siblings throughout their adult life.

5. American Horror Story

If you haven’t had the chance to catch this anthology horror series since it first aired in 2011, Netflix is giving you the chance to catch up.

Fans have different favorites among the show’s nine seasons, but many favor Cult (season 7) and Hotel (season 5), which earned Lady Gaga a Golden Globe award.

6. Bates Motel

If you’re a fan of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 masterpiece, then you might find this series as one of the best Netflix horror shows worthy of your time.

8. Castle Rock

Castle Rock is an American psychological horror anthology based on the stories by Stephen King and his fictional town of Castle Rock, Maine.

Online critics describe the series as a basket of Easter eggs for fans of the world-renowned author. 

9. Glitch

This Australian series, which premiered in 2015, follows seven people who return from the dead with perfect health but zero memory. This is somewhat a very close cousin of the French series, Les Revenants, which was also adapted into an American show, The Returned.

10. Mist

Mist is one of the best Netflix horror shows to watch if you love sci-fi. Based on the 1980 novella of the same name by Stephen King, the story features a mysterious mist that enveloped the town of Bridgeville, Maine. Eventually, residents learn that the mist is more than what it seems to be.

3D Printed House: The Future of Architecture and Construction

Published

on

As our technologies evolve, 3D printing technology has advanced over the past few decades. Thanks to this, designers created many models, products, and prototypes at a fast pace. Alright, you’ve probably heard all the latest 3D printing creations. Now, we’re on another milestone as 3D printed houses are on the rise to “mainstream.” 

The Future of Construction

Screencapture from Mashable

On average, the overall process of building a house takes at least 6.5 to 9 months. However, 3Strands and ICON collaborated on a home building project that will shake the world of construction. Let’s see if this is a good or bad thing for the construction industry. 

3Strands is a creative real estate developer that aims to build “better” homes to improve people’s lifestyle. On the other hand, ICON develops advanced technologies for construction. Now, putting these two together created a miracle for the construction industry. 

This 3D printing project commenced because of the following problems: 

  • Lack of supply
  • Sustainability
  • Resiliency 
  • Affordability
  • Design options
  • Extreme lack of housing

If you have any experience buying a pre-selling condo or house and lot, the downside involves the construction length. But what if 3Strands and ICON managed to create a dozen homes with at least 5 to 7 days length of construction time. However, in this case, let’s use the term “printing time.” 

By the time the whole world catches up with this type of construction, it will benefit our environment. 3D printed houses lead to less: 

  • Wastage of natural resources
  • Carbon footprint
  • Time consumed

On the other hand, this convenient construction method will harm skilled workers such as but not limited to the following: 

  • Carpenters
  • Masons
  • Painters
  • Laborers
  • Etc. 

If ever the world adapted to this new construction technology, there will be a massive workforce cutback. On the downside of advanced technology, a lot of workers will lose their livelihood. 

3D House Features 

Screencapture from Mashable

As the first-ever 3D printed house for sale in America, each house costs $400,000 each. These 3D houses are now for sale in Austin, Texas. In the Austin series, four homes are currently on the market listings. Each house has 1,000 to 2,000 square feet of lot space in total.   

The design of the 3D printed houses has a clean futuristic look. On the other hand, the designer’s use of textures and colors holds a satisfying balance to the eyes. It’s a modern house that’s worth the price.

Design Features: 

  • Two to four bedrooms
  • Covered front porches
  • Extensive front yards
  • Covered parking
  • Open concept floor plan
  • Bespoke Interior Design
  • Vaulted master bedrooms
  • Large North-facing windows
  • High-performance HVAC
  • Secluded office/bedrooms
  • Minimalist architectural aesthetic

The first floor of the houses for sale is 3D printed using ICON’s advanced materials and technology. It’s designed to be: 

  • Safer
  • Able to withstand floor, fire, and wind. 
  • Sustainable
  • Resilient

Conclusion

In the end, this 3D-printed house is the future of construction and architecture. This project is an excellent achievement for the 3D printing industry, from creating miniature models to livable dwellings. Again, this is a fantastic milestone for our ever-evolving technology. Let’s take this as another step closer to a more sustainable and environment-friendly future.
