Well now you can add another skill to their repertoire as this rather astonishing robot can build an entire house, and it can do it in just two days.
Meet Hadrian X - a lorry-mounted robot that with clinical precision can lay all the bricks needed to build a house in a fraction of the time it would take us puny humans to do it.
Hadrian was created by an Australian firm, Hadrian X uses advanced 3D mapping and a laser guidance system to make sure that each brick is perfectly laid on top of the other.
Of course the real benefit of Hadrian X isn’t the precision it’s the fact that it can work solidly, 24 hours a day and seven days a week.
Capable of laying a 1000 bricks per hour and cutting each individual brick to size, Fastbrick Robotics believes that their new robot could revolutionise the construction industry.
Instead of traditional cement, Hadrian X uses a special construction glue.
‘By utilising a construction adhesive rather that traditional mortar, the Hadrian X will maximise the speed of the build and strength and thermal effeciency of the final structure,’ explains the company.
