An artist’s rendition of what it will look like when robot bees swarm to build a skyscraper in South Korea.

 Writing in eVolo, an architecture magazine, Danielle Del Sol says, “These bees aren’t interested in honey: these workers will actually build a structure. Each robot is capable of using cartridges filled with agents that enable them to construct literal physical material, which the designers dub “augmented synthetic material.”
