Your beach bucket and shovel have become obsolete.
At tbreak, we love robots. Even more so if we can take them to the beach. Researchers of The Stone Spray Project at the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia have created a 3D printing robot that uses organic materials to build artful sand structures.
The research project was conceived to explore the possibilities of new construction methods and digital manufacturing. The robot uses soil (or sand) as the main building material. It mixes the soil with a solidifier component and sprays it on surfaces to create structures. It is powered by solar energy and the binding material is eco friendly too.
The days when we take our own robots to JBR beach instead of our Lamborghinis might soon be upon us.
