ROBO-BUILDER LAUNCHING IN CALIFORNIA (with YouTube video)

But now, the University of Southern California professor's contour crafting machine will be put to the test; it's scheduled to erect its first house in California within the next few months. The two-story house will built in less than 24 hours out of only concrete and gypsum -- and without the help of a single human hand. Khoshenevis' groundbreaking robo-builder has caused some raised eyebrows and dropped jaws within the architectural community, as the machine provides a new model for construction that drastically cuts building timelines, material, manpower, and most importantly, waste and carbon emissions.
