    One step closer to the day when humans have nothing to do and so become irrelevant?

    In my lifetime I've seen electronic technology progress from vacuum tubes to transistors to integrated circuits to Gigabyte speeds.

    Robotics seem to be on an exponential curve too, but at a slower rate. I'm sure the millenial population will see a similar lifetime exponential growth in robotics that we can't imagine now.

    Maybe you should have a second thought when mistreating a robot...
    (humor)
    Maybe this video will be used by the robots of 2050 to demonstrate to the young robots why humans must be kept in zoos.

    Hadrian X is a bricklaying robot able to construct a house in 48 hours. It measures dynamic interference and movement in real-time and counteracts it to maintain stability:

    Astounding is an understatement.
    Not only for the dexterity of the robots, but also the choreography.
    Next, I would like t0 see them partner in an Argentine tango.

    You direct a computer at one task and it works , keeping balance for one is just one task, adding tasks increases need for computer power to a degree that making a multi-function robot is a immense task. It will start to function when it can choose other perimeters of it's ability as a part of another action. Our ability to do so much as humans are because of this cross sourcing.
