Construction's Future is Right Out of Science Fiction

You don’t often think of thousands drones building walls 24 hours a day with no help from anybody. I know I never did until I watched this video.

Everything from exoskeleton suits for construction workers (there are 14 companies making these) to concrete that can repair itself are no longer in the realm of science fiction. They are already here.

Watch the video and try to envision your business using one or more of these ‘futuristic’ new products and applications that are here right now.

The future of construction is going to be a wild ride.

Interesting! G.E. developed an exoskeleton suit in 1965. I mostly like it because of its name: HARDIMAN (“Human Augmentation Research and Development Investigation.” and Man from MANipulator).

I'm not making this up! http://cyberneticzoo.com/man-amplifiers/1966-69-g-e-hardiman-i-ralph-mosher-american/
