Robot bricklayer

There are several articles about a bricklaying robot that can build a house in two days. This particular one is from Engadet. http://tinyurl.com/nggttsh I was picturing smaller bricks than what the machine is apparently laying. The ones I was thinking about were maybe 3x4x6 or so.

I liked the comment "Now that's a 3D printer!".
I can't see how they could get any precision out of something on a long boom.
They say it "slathers" the mortar. Nothing about cleaning up the joint, I wonder if the machine needs helpers.

Much easier to use illegal alien labor. Just go to home depot and take home a few in your pickup truck.
Pay 'em $100, a few beers, and you're good to go.
