Called Hadrian X, this massive brick-laying system consists of a 98-foot robotic arm mounted on a truck that is guided by motion sensors. How does it know where to lay the bricks? It comes loaded with a digital blueprint, and can auto-correct its position 1,000 times a second.
The arm also comes equipped with a nozzle that dispenses mortar, which can also be customized the exact amount required. It managed to achieve a sustained laying rate of over 200 bricks per hour throughout the course of a full house build, making it commercially competitive when compared to traditional manual bricklaying in various markets around the world.
