Fastrick Robotics’ latest high-tech robot is claimed to be the world’s first fully automated bricklaying robot.
Even the smallest homes take at least a few weeks to build. Not when Hadrian is involved, however.
Named after the Roman emperor who built defense walls in England, this machine can lay up to 1,000 bricks per hour. Yes, it is able to singlehandedly build 150 homes in one year.
Hadrian works nonstop using 3D CAD models to reduce waste and guarantee precision to within 1/100 of an inch. As described in the video below, it first creates a CAD drawing to determine the location as well as the size of every brick before cutting. Then it puts them in place with a 28-meter-long telescopic boom and finally seals their position with mortar.
