iRobot Files Patent Application for Autonomous All-in-One 3D Printing, Milling, Drilling and Finishing Robot

2nd February 2013

Read it.

A Robotic Fabricator would automate manufacturing and assembly processes to reduce the need for human labor, decrease manufacturing costs, and improve product quality.

Not much room for Rosie the Riveter in this scenario.

Nor for the AFL-CIO, either. Look for Democrats to load it down with so many regulations that it will be most cost-effective to hire proles instead.

Nice concept, though.
