Robotic Arm Creates Super-Intricate Sand Sculptures

August 6, 2012


This is a video of a robotic arm that sprays a mixture of sand and water and some sort of adhesive to create these intricate, organic-looking sculptures. I don't know about you, but if I saw a robotic arm making sand castles on the beach I'd bury it and then give it a big ol' sand peen. Wait, no -- a SMALL one. Actually, I take that back too -- I'd just bury it and wait for the tide to come in and electrocute it. Yep, that's what I'd do. Oooooor use coconuts to spell out 'HAVE YOUR WAY WITH ME, MERMAIDS" and lay in the surf all butt-ass naked like a starfish.

Hit the jump for a video of the thing in action.

Thanks to Alan80, who used to always make giant sand castles and then pay hermit crabs and shrimp $1 a day to guard the thing. Ooooookay, he's a crazy person.

    Know i'm gonna catch shit for it, but kinda dig the music. Anyone know what it is?

  • I'm pretty sure the robot was rotating on a record turntable. Classy.

    I'm not tooo impressed until it makes idetifiable castles or landmarks. Squiggly wall things are boring. MAKE A SANDCASTLE DAMNIT!!!

    I know you worked hard robot, but a lot of robots work hard. You think you built that? You didn't build that!

    Yo, Bluecheesedressing, I'm really happy for you, and I'm gonna let you finish, but Robot had one of the best sand castles of all time.
