Bricklayers to be replaced by robots?

Robot bricklayers

As I procrastinate with a little help from Youtube, I bump in to bricklaying videos, as you do, and seeing to my surprise robots laying them.

As a fan of Auf Wiedersehen Pet and the lovable gang of bricklayers, sparky and joiner I wondered to myself if we can really look to replace such a trade with robot / assembly line style laying?

Now the following video shows innovation and we can call it #contech, it could save time (not at the pace though I saw) and money in the long run. It will offend bricklayers who will see, rightly so, their trade as a skill and not something that a few wired pieces of a robotic arm can replace.

What do you think?
