Robots to build bridge over an Amsterdam canal : Are robots taking over the world?

many people has said it that the invention of robots to do human work can be dangerous to humans, People are loosing jobs over this but it seems these robots are just getting started. Dutch robotic printing firm MX3D is planning to use industrial robots to print a metal bridge over water by "drawing" steel structures in 3D.

How it works : Engineers start with a piece of metal attached to a canal bank. The robots begin at one side of the canal, adding small amounts of molten metal to create lines in midair. The lines intersect to create a self-supporting structure -- in this case, a bridge. The team is planning to start the construction by 2017. But they plan to reveal the exact location for the project by year end.

The machines have gone mainstream in recent years. Amazon (AMZN, Tech30) has a 3D printing store, while Staples (SPLS) sells MakerBot products as well as the Cube from 3D Systems. But owning your own 3D machine is pretty pricey - the MakerBot Replicator Mini sells for $1,375.
