Robots building houses

One of the more interesting developments in the world of robotics this week is a new way of thinking about house construction. It is a complete paradigm shift. Instead of assembling the house out of bits and pieces (dimensional lumber, siding and sheetrock, for example), the house is "printed" using fast-setting concrete and a giant robotic arm. You can see some very nice animations that show how the process would work on this page, and comments are available here.
