    Old news, however, I was not aware they were going to use automated workers to build it, seems like an unnecessary expense as I assume they would be more expensive to build and maintain, then their human counter parts.

    It actually won't be that expensive if you watch the video. Building it will be simple, using air pressure the pyramids structures will be built and the support is made by a third material made from carbon, which diamonds are also made of, called nano tubes that are extremely stable. Supports over the Tokyo Bay are the same material as well, which are supposedly supposed to support trillions of pounds.
