Robotic Colony Construction System

Semester: Spring 2012

Driven by my criticisms of current methods of building construction (and the excessive energy, effort, and expense that come along with it), the aim of my final undergraduate project is to develop a colony of low-tech robots that can reconstruct and reincarnate space using additive manufacturing of sustainable and reusable materials. By collecting, melting, and mixing scrap metals and parts of decimate structures, these robots transform existing material into new, hybrid composites, to reallocate them into inhabitable spaces.
