Brick Laying Machine

Let’s face it, even a livable tiny home with all the amenities you need to live comfortably takes at the very least weeks to build, that is unless…you’re using Fastrick Robotics’ latest high-tech robot. Introducing Hadrian, named after the Roman emperor who built defense walls in England. This robot can endlessly, laying up to 1,000 bricks per hour, and capable of building 150 homes in a single year. It’s claimed to be the world’s first fully automated bricklaying robot. Continue reading for a video showing how it works and more information.

As mentioned above, Hadrian works nonstop and uses 3D CAD models to minimize waste and guarantee accuracy to within 1/100 of an inch. To be more specific, it first creates a CAD drawing to determine the location as well as size of every brick before cutting, then it puts them in place with a 28-meter-long telescopic boom, and lastly, seals the placement with mortar.
