MIT's web-spinning robot: To transform building design, construction

04/30/2012 | Forbes

A gantry platform -- and more -- could eventually be built by a robotic arm, according to researchers at the Mediated Matter Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Media Lab. "The full implications of autonomous fabrication dependent on structural and environmental conditions are still unclear but may result in woven habitats with properties that vary locally, resulting in a high degree of material and structural efficiency," said Elizabeth Tsai, a research associate at the lab.
