There's all read plenty of pre-fabricated houses out there!

My impression is this is intended for basic housing in less
developed countries to use locally available materials.

Looks like a solution in search of a problem.
I guess a gizmo that fits in the bed of a pickup and
cranks out bricks won't get enough media attention.

If you're suggesting soil-cement bricks in competition with a 3D
printer pumping out a similar thing, there's no contest. I worked on a
soil-cement project 45 years ago. It's labor-intensive and very slow.
The only place it makes any sense is in some place where people have
nothing else to do.
