If you happen to be on Pike Street In New York's Chinatown between now and November 14th, you might catch a glimpse of "R-O-B" the bricklaying robot building a 7,000 brick "Infinite Loop" sculpture along a pedestrian island.

Designed by Fabio Gramazio and Matthias Kohler, the Infinite Loop has been pieced together without mortar, one brick at a time since late September. A remarkable feat of robo-accuracy for sure, but we already know that these industrial robots are capable of some pretty amazing things. Plus, this bricklayer doesn't break for lunch or catcall women on the street. [Storefront News via Fast Company]
