Quantum International Corp. (OTCBB: QUAN) is investigating commercialization of home-building robots that could soon revolutionize construction—and the best part is, the technology already exists.

Pioneered by USC Professor of Industrial and Systems Engineering Behrokh Khoshnevis, a new kind of robot is being developed that can read an architect’s CAD drawings and build a house using 3D printing technology. By applying successive layers of concrete on top of one other, the gantry-mounted robot can build vertical walls and even domed roofs.

“These robots can build structures faster, more safely and more efficiently with a smaller carbon footprint,” said Quantum CEO Robert Federowicz. “We envision this technology augmenting rather than replacing the traditional construction industry, potentially creating an entire new sector of jobs engineering, assembling, transporting and maintaining these robots. We already know that 3D printing and rapid prototyping work—this is simply a new approach we’re exploring to preexisting tech.”

3D-printable houses are only one robotics application that Quantum is investigating as it works to build market share in the booming worldwide robotics industry. The company is currently in talks with cutting-edge robotics developers all over the world to help deliver new innovations to market.
