Paving roads has never been an easy job. This occupation has changed very little over the past couple centuries. Materials have evolved, sure, but the technique has made little progress- it is still the same strenuous work to lay down a brick road by hand, one stone at a time.

Naturally, being a tech blog we are enamored by anything that has “printer” in the title but the RPS6 is pretty impressive, while utilizing a fairly simple technique.
