This machine can really come down on you like a tonne of bricks – because It makes up to 15,000 of them in an hour.

The BMM 300 mobile brick production machine hoovers up dirt and water and rolls it into a neat line of bricks.

As it drives up and down, a rotary wheel drops each brick one behind the other.

Crucially for developing countries such as India and Bangladesh, it can make more bricks in four minutes than a manual labourer could in a day.

The machine is manufactured by SnPC Machines in India, who captured the extremely satisfying process in a video.

A spokesperson said: “This machine is a brick factory on wheels.

“As it moves forward it lays the bricks like eggs. They are all perfectly formed.

“By hand a person can produce between 1000 and 1200 bricks in a whole day whereas the mobile brick machine can do that many in about four minutes.

“The bricks its produces are about four times as strong as well.

“It is one of the basic needs for a developing country. It makes construction so much easier.

“It’s currently available on India, Nepal, Bangladesh and is soon going to African countries and the Middle East.”
