The Australian company Fastbrick Robotics recently released a video of its product: a bricklaying robot that can complete a house in just two days.
The two-minute clip shows a jobsite vehicle with a 98-foot extended arm that feeds bricks into the machine's 'hand' for it to be laid into a pattern designed using a 3D layout. The machine lays 1,000 bricks per hour and can run 24/7. The robot also uses a construction adhesive as opposed to mortar to speed up construction process and thermal efficiency.
Fastbrick Robotics CEO Mike Pivac expects the product, called Hadrian X, to be on jobsites in Australia within the year. He told The West Australian, "We think from that time on, the world is our oyster."
