Watch these alienlike robots weave a bus-size fiberglass structure—all by themselves

If fiberglass tubes suddenly started to sprout out of the ground, you might think you had stumbled on some alien invasion.

Over 12 hours, a team of 22 robots was able to build two treelike structures 4.5 meters tall (about the height of a double-decker bus), the researchers report today in Science Robotics.

The team says the technology could be used to build structures in remote environments with unknown terrain, like after an extreme weather event, because instructions on what to build can be beamed wirelessly to the robots, and they can adapt the blueprint around any obstacles that might crop up in their path.
