Meet SAM, the bricklaying robot
Bricklaying robot could build your next home and it will do it 5 times faster than a human. It can place approx 400 bricks an hour. If human lays 500 bricks a day, SAM will be laying 1200 bricks in the same time.
It basically picks up the bricks, lays the mortar and places the brick in the desired destination. Even though SAM is efficient, it still needs human direction. It is unlikely that in the near future robots will replace humans on the building sites, because human supervision is always needed. Even so, robots are here coming help in the heavy lifting.
