It is a reality, 3D printing, which is a form of what you are seeying has been hapening for quite some time. The technology is nowhere near where it needs to be for anyone losing jobs just yet. But the machines WILL TAKE OVER

I have discussed this topic with people before and to tell you the truth the concensus is that it will not happen any time soon. People are scared of change and do not trust machines just yet. It will take a lot of people to just trust a machine to make their houses. A lot of people probably don't think or realize how much of a car is made by a machine already. That and other consumer products. Construction however is still protected by public opinion in the US. At least somewhat.

This made me think of the virtual shopping carts. A grocery store ran a pilot program with smart shopping carts that would keep track of what you were purchasing as well as give you directions if you asked for an item. Most people were annoyed by the carts and the pilot eventually failed.

Sounds like a good idea to me. Unless of course the machine is programmed to piss in or throw half eaten McFich sandwiches in the space between the walls.

As soon as the machines start "taking over" people will realize that they shouldn't train in those fields that are being eliminated, but the ones that currently are will still have plenty of work to do. It's not like there's going to be a switch flipped and every construction will be done by a machine once the technology is sorted out. It's called progress.

So you say until you lose your job to "progress."

No doubt. It will be like the great carriage debacle of 1901!! ...stupid facking cars doing all the work for us. My uncle was a carriage maker! Now he's unemployed...

You have obviously been on a job site or two...

Take me home!

I just checked out the animation. They built a house in 5 minutes!!! That cement didn't fall over or anything. And I don't know much about construction but I thought support for the cement had to be in there. Howl would you hang your pictures without the stud? Drill them in? Oh and it's amazing howl the cement didn't spill over. And the classical music (I'm assuming to keep the machines calm?).

Man, that's it. Jobs lost. Different world coming folks.

i think it's a little short-sighted to always equate technology with job loss. Machines like this do work faster and oftentimes with less error, and there are definite societal benefits to that. Look at the page-- low income housing is one great benefit for this technology. Either way, though there is still a place for the human in all of this. Not the same jobs-- but different ones.

It's not armageddon, geez. And the animation wasn't real time anyway-- it doesn't exactly build a house in 5 minutes.
All it is is a giant CNC machine. ...because those have been AWFUL for the world of manufacturing.

I dunno--cast concrete housing? I think they tried that already, something like 60 years ago. They couldn't sell the things.

Might work for cheap housing and utility buildings, where people don't care, but somehow I don't think this is the end of the construction industry as we know it.

How is this a bad thing? If this is even easier than envisioned what will happen? The cost of decent housing goes down allowing more familys to have their own home and a chance of a better life. Socially, this does much more good than the potential loss of some construction jobs. Furthermore, if houses are cheaper, the volume of sales will go up. This may raise employment in the home construction business vs. reduce it. Patrick is right. The old buggie whip story told to every 101 business class holds true in this case too. This is like damning computers for putting CPAs and steno pools out of work.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

That's obvious. Maybe you're just a little too tight in the cheeks and crack area. Oh yeah, no use, ya don't think I'm funny. Awwwwww

But I am proud you're thinking - now. Good job!

Back on topic:

The future with anything will always have someone try to make it different. We as humans want it improved, quicker, cheaper etc. This will take a long time I feel to get going but some parts are already there. A good example is the car industry. The assembly lines basically have machines. But at the same time there are humans assembling other parts. I see humans being needed no matter what. But hey, who am I? I just live in these things, I don't build them!
