Every now and again someone, somewhere has, what on the face of it sounds like a delusional idea that they will revolutionise the world. Look up a year or so later, and this one just might have. Well at least the world in which this podcast dares to trouble – Construction, or well actually demolition. We have already learned a little of modern day demolition syntax: “deconstruct”, “erase the building” and the premise of ERO’s inherent abilities; that of “hydro-demolition”. In the concluding podcast interview with Omer¬†Haciomeroglu, we talk about how his whole concept may be taken forward; about prototyping, funding and indeed who might be able to pick up that particular gauntlet, because there are a lot of challenges still remanning, even though the interest has been huge. This podcast is approximately 18 minutes long
