Looked up a video of this, 2-3 people stand on the machine and line the bricks in this way. Still pretty cool, but I thought a machine was arranging them. Still way faster than hand laying them.

@Cartunze I went to the trouble to look this up just for you:
Milton Friedman was traveling in China in the 1960s and visited a work site where a new canal was being built. He was shocked to see that instead of modern tractors and earth movers, the workers all had shovels. He asked why there were no machines.
The government bureaucrat explained: "You don't understand. This is a jobs program." To which Milton replied: "Oh, I thought you were trying to build a canal. If it`s jobs you want, then you should give these workers spoons, not shovels."
