HOUSTON--In addition to many other promising tech innovations, Quantum International Corp. (OTCBB: QUAN) is exploring the development of robots capable of building a complete house in a single day-with practically no assistance from human builders.
A California scientist's experiments have proven that such a feat may indeed be possible. A USC professor of industrial and systems engineering, Behrokh Khoshnevis, has devised a machine that can read an architect's CAD drawings and build a house using 3D printing technology. By squirting successive layers of concrete one on top of the other, the robot can create vertical walls and even domed roofs.
"Robots of this kind could potentially dramatically reduce the time and money needed to build quality homes, including plumbing, electrical and HVAC conduits," said Quantum CEO Robert Federowicz. "These machines can theoretically work around the clock, needing only a constant supply of power and semi-liquid concrete. It's exactly the kind of robotics innovation that we're interested in helping to commercialize on a global scale."
The uses for robot-built housing are nearly limitless. Such homes could be rapidly produced as emergency and low-cost housing in inner cities and developing nations, or as military housing or even structures on the moon. And all for potentially 25 percent of the cost of traditional housing today.
3D-printable houses are only one robotics application that Quantum is investigating as it works to build market share in the booming worldwide robotics industry. The company is currently in talks with cutting-edge robotics developers all over the world to help deliver new innovations to market.
Quantum is focused on aggressive growth as it competes alongside robotics companies including iRobot Corporation (NASDAQ: IRBT), Honda Motor Co., Ltd. (NYSE: HMC) and AeroVironment, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVAV).
