Most of us are familiar with 3D printers that can create small, kitschy art projects and toys. There’s also the 3D-printed food and fashion. But we’re yet to see durable industrial version of 3D printing. Until know.
Take a look at the video the Minibuilders made, and observe how revolutionary the technology is and will be.
One or many Minibuilders begin to make a structure by creating what’s called the “footprint,” the foundation. Then, grip robots are attached to the structure to slowly build the walls.
The minibuilders behave like a group of construction workers, just not quite human.
With 3D Printing seemingly in every aspect of production, whether culinary, fashion, or functional construction, what is the prospect for work? Think about a technology like Minibuilders and wonder what the impact will be on the construction trades. Is it positive? Will there be riots?
Inevitably, technology always disrupts our work security. But what will we do as more and more jobs are performed by robots? How do you channel that extra time into something positive?
