I'd say that thing can BARELY hang drywall. It won't be long to perfect that one, but it's going to take some time before they can get one that can do plumbing.

That would just result in the same quality hole cuts as we get now. The more important question is if the robot shares.

As long as the weed isn't some weak swag and the beer isn't yellow like pee, pass it this way.

Closer than we think maybe.........

Interesting read, but the section pertinent to this topic is "how it could shape the future"

I don't think you'll get a robot to plumb a normal house any time soon. Pre-fab houses made in factories is a whole nother story. I am suprised modulars aren't made by robots already. Heck, for all I know maybe the steel stud ones are.
