House building robot in action -- not as exciting as it sounds


We were kind of hoping for more lasers, explosions and flashy sound effects, but we suppose this will have to do. The YouTubes have delivered unto us some incredibly boring (yet strangely mesmerizing) video of a mini-version of this bot doing its concrete / gypsum laying, house building thing we were hearing about yesterday. Apparently a second robotic arm handles the roof supports that the bot then slaps more concrete on top of, so you won't be able to see any roof building action here, in case that's your thing or whatever. Peep the vid after the break.
