A robot developed by an Australian company can build a house made out of bricks four times faster than humans can, and with only one arm.

A Business Insider story details the Hadrian 105 robot, made by Fastbrick Robotics in Perth, Australia. Using its arm, the robot can lay 225 standard-sized bricks per hour — which equals about a half day's work for a fast human bricklayer.

The company released a time-lapse video to show off the robot's capabilities.

Researchers are working on another prototype bricklaying robot, which would be able to lay 1,000 bricks per hour — twice as much work a human can do in an entire day.

"We are a frontier technology company, and we're one step closer to bringing fully automated, end-to-end 3D printing brick construction into the mainstream," Fastbrick CEO Mike Pivac told Business Insider.

"We're very excited to be taking the world-first technology we proved with the Hadrian 105 demonstrator and manufacturing a state-of-the-art machine."

Android co-founder Andy Rubin said in June robots could eventually control every connected device around us.
