That should sort the housing crisis

It can build an entire house in just two days – and never takes tea breaks.

An Australian firm has revealed the Hadrian X, a giant truck mounted building robot that can lay 1,000 bricks an hour, glueing them into place.

It can work 24 hours day, and finish an entire house in just two days.

If you think about it, once you forgo the superficial need for uniqueness, houses are pretty much the same and very much capable of being built by robots out of a set of standard parts, especially for such things as government/council housing. The rich pricks can pay top dollar to do it their own way.

Mounted on the back of a truck, it is simply driven onto a building site.

It can put down 1,000 bricks an hour using a 30m boom, allowing it to stay in a single position while it builds a house.

Fastbrick, the firm behind it, says it could revolutionise building.

CEO Mike Pivac said:’We are a frontier company, and we are one step closer to bringing fully automated, end to end 3D printing brick construction into mainstream.

Superficial uniqueness can be provided with… paint, roofing colours, cladding and internal fittings.

In a crisis, you need to lower your expectations.
