Summary, etc.:
Humans have landed men on the moon, programmed cars to drive themselves, and put the knowledge of our entire civilization in your back pocket. But no one from MIT nerds to Army Corps engineers has ever built a robot that can lay bricks as well as a mason. Unlike the controlled conditions of a factory line, where robots are now ubiquitous, no two construction sites are alike, and a days work involves countless variables bricks that range in size and quality, temperamental mortar mixes, uneven terrain, fickle weather, and moody foremen.
