The Amazing Road Making Machine


Tiger Stone | The Amazing Paving Machine :
Laying down paving bricks is back-breaking, time-consuming work. Henk van Kuijk, director of Dutch industrial company Vanku, evidently decided that squatting/kneeling and shoving the bricks into place on the ground was just a little too slow, so he invented the Tiger Stone paving machine. The road-wide device is fed loose bricks, and lays them out onto the road as it slowly moves along. A quick going-over with a tamper, and you’ve got an instant brick road. It is a brick printer or you can say road laying machine. If  this tool is in the hands of some artist and designer it can create artistic roads. This machine could be used to make some insane patterns and murals. Using it to make type or inset lettering into could be super cool as well.
