Two Guys and a Bot

They're doing quite a bit of construction around our house, and frequently I'll see the classic scenario where one poor schlub is digging away, while 5 guys stand around and watch (his managers, no doubt). But today, I had to chuckle as I walked past this sight:

In this case, both guys were standing around and the remote controlled vehicle was doing the work. Who knew that one of the most important qualifications for construction was time spent playing Mario Cart?

The bots are here folks, just get used to it.

Personally, I'm convinced that the closest we are going to get to flying cars is when we all have our own personal drones making various trips the supermarket on our behalf.

Here are a couple more photos from my walk through constructionville. In this case, it's the Navy Annex and it's just about demolished. No sign of any bots here, just guys using big machines to turn buildings into palm sized chunks of stone.
