Technological advancements in 2015 weren't all about smart devices or energy-efficient dryers. Construction Dive rounded up the top eight tech innovations in the construction industry that have had or are going to have a major impact on the way you build.
Their list includes a 3-D printed estate slated for 2017, self-driving trucks for roadside work zones, and a permeable concrete that soaks in 1,000 gallons of water a minute. Topping the list, though, was a robotics startup creating a technology that can reconfigure a room with tiny cubes.
The "Project Dom Indoors" process involves tiny robots living inside cubes created from 5-inch tiles and aluminum studs that make up the floor of a room. Those cubes can rise out of the floor to create walls, surfaces and tables, and then slide back into their original position in the floor. The robots have the ability to assemble the cubes into new configurations, transforming a conference room into a lounge or open workspace, for example.
