    I like the design, but a real world version might have to move a tad faster…

      And perhaps work on non-proprietary truss/girder systems? I like the idea, but it would be great to see a design that worked on standard I-beams. Maybe the beams could be marked so the robut can “read” where it is on the beam,  but with minimal adjustment to how they are currently manufactured. The specialized truss systems would be pretty expensive.

     So, how long before a set of robots can build any size house from scratch?
