Construction of these industrial and
research complexes is carried out
by robotic equipment that receives
instructions via satellite. The
construction crews consist of
automated cranes that travel
along the buildings' length installing

floors, windows, curtain-walls,
roofing, and other components
from the ground up, entirely free
from human intervention. These
devices contain self-monitoring
sensors to minimize industrial
accidents or collisions with other
devices or living beings.

they are a modular design of such
diversity as to allow maximum
individual expression in interior
design and décor.


Desalinization Plant

This mega-machine is transporting a transparent enclosure used for
evaporative condensation. It is placed over canals, some of them
containing salt water, and serves as an evaporative desalinization plant to
supply clean water for drinking, irrigation, and other needs. This is
accomplished by harnessing the power of the sun and helps eliminate
water shortages throughout the world.

Shipping Systems

These ships are
floating automated
plants, capable of
processing raw
materials into finished
products while en
route to their
destinations. Some serve as industrial fish processing plants and canneries,
while others are equipped with multi-cellular compartments capable of
transporting a wide variety of products.
