A team of researchers at the University of Adelaide has developed a robot that can build new homes using materials that have previously been seen only in nature.
The robot uses a computer algorithm to create a plan that can be easily updated as the robot makes changes to its environment.
The research team said the robots ability to quickly make changes to the environment could have huge implications for home design.
The researchers said the robot’s ability to easily create a blueprint for its future home would make it one of the first robots to be able to build homes.
The team said they hoped the robots power would be enough to get the robots out to more remote locations where people would be less likely to be disturbed.
The project was funded by the Australian National University.
Professor Tom Daley from the university said it was important to make the robot able to create the designs it needed.
“We’re really excited to see robots that can take over a very simple task like building a house,” he said.
The scientists said the new robot could have a future impact in design.
“The robots ability is very different to how we’ve previously built these robots,” Professor Daley said.
I think this is really important because the world’s population is growing at about twice the rate of the population of Australia, so we’re in a great place right now to be making these robots that will help people.”
