An Australian robotics company has created a robotic arm, called the Hadrian X, that can lay 1,000-plus bricks per hour.
The company claims that the bot can complete the shell of a home in two days.
By reducing the labor cost of masonry, the robot could disrupt the multi-trillion-dollar global construction market.

A construction crew can build a small home in about four to six weeks. To shave time and labor costs, some homebuilders have chosen to automate part of the process instead.

A new robot, developed by Perth-based company Fastbrick Robotics, may be the speediest homebuilding machine yet.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
