The MecoPress by MecoConcept lets you make your own mud bricks just as the Egyptians used to. Mud bricks have a longer life span than modern bricks, and this kit lets you make your own LEGO-like solid bricks from mud in just 30 seconds.

The MecoPress is a hydraulic brick press that's easy to use; it transforms local soil, clay or silt into a brick with a little cement mixture. These bricks will come in handy for those who live in disaster-prone areas and homeowners who wish to build an eco-friendly home.
