This is a very interesting video of flying robots building a tower out of preformed parts. Here, the parts are laid out and the robots fly off and build as fast and efficiently as they can.

There is a plan afoot to convert Riley’s snooker hall (once Jesters) on the corner of Wimbledon Park Road and Pirbright Road, Southfields London SW18, into a cinema. Which it was originally. Having been inside, it is a great building, proper full height ceiling and wasted as a snooker hall. Unless the vast space was […]

Who with what com is an initially interesting site which examines what some famous buildings are actually made of, and how they were made. Although the South Bank Centre in London is not in there.
