Amazing Machine 'Prints' Brick Roads
In goes a truckload of bricks, out comes a road! Part printer, part pasta press, these remarkable machines spit out a perfectly uniform sheets of bricks to make walkways up to 20 feet wide. Several companies operate such machines, including Tiger Stone, RoadPrinter, and RPS. As construction workers insert bricks into the machine’s forward compartment, the machine automatically processes the bricks and spits the assembled road from its rear, leaving a meticulously crafted path in its wake.
