This Bricklaying Robot Can Build Walls Faster Than Humans (HBO)



Meet the Semi-Automated Mason or SAM, a robot that is so good at building walls it could take over the construction industry. Created by New York-based company Construction Robotics, the brick-laying robot promises to both increase productivity while reducing overall labor costs.

While the efficiency on construction sites has been stagnant in the last 20 to 30 years, manufacturing efficiency has increased significantly due to robotics and technology. Construction Robotics created SAM to solve that problem. SAM requires a human partner to smooth over the works, but the heavy lifting is left to the bot.

The robot can lay bricks at least three times faster than humans – and it never gets tired or makes mistakes. VICE News went to a construction site in Virginia to see SAM at work.

  • If bricklayers actually wanted a respected job that uses their hands, they should've become surgeons

  • Can’t lay coins, archways, ribbons double ribbons window seals solders herringbone pattern fireplaces. I worked with 4 bricklayers each one could lay 3000 a day.

  • The only time a robot will truly take the job of a mason/bricklayer will be android type robot like I robot. It would need to be self aware and have intelligence that of a human so that it can overcome problems that wouldn't be able to be programmed

  • That machine is getting all the cream long straight runs 2 labourers and someone striking the joints I think most bricklayers could do that If they turn up and continually lay bricks and nothing else

  • This will never take off. They never show how long it takes to clean at the end of the day. How much does it cost to have someone come to service it. Remember everything in masonry get beat up

  • Robots are good. Dont be stuck in 'saving jobs'. The spinning machine had been invented way before in the 1600's but the Queen was afraid that people will lose their jobs so the technology resurface only in the 1800s, severely limiting progress.

  • I guess everything would be all good until the damn robot gets a mind of its own and wants to pick up your payments for jobs and spends it on software uploads lol

  • Why a man invent things?
    So that he could have more time on a couch and watch TV.
