In the opening titles of the Westworld TV series, we see various things being constructed using some sort of white "thread".

This is mostly people (hosts) and animals, but it also looks like a piano is being built this way.

Does this mean that all the buildings, clothes, weapons and everything else is made of this material? If so, why? Surely it would have been a lot less trouble to put a real piano in the saloon, or to build a house using real wood, for instance?

  • Watching the credits I can't see any evidence the "white stuff" is used to make the piano. Just looks like there is a piano there.

  • On the video clip you helpfully added, between 0:08 and 0:12, it appears to be attaching what look like piano strings, but I may be mistaken.

    Just to nitpick: "Surely it would have been a lot less trouble to put a real piano in the saloon" Not that sure. The white stuff machine is a hardcore version of our 3D printers and some (many?) people say 3D printers are a revolution and we would rather print objects at home rather than going to a shop in a near future. Also, the Delos company in season 1 (I didn't see season 2 yet) emphasizes its control over the environment of the park. They may have created some elements of the park like the piano if they considered it important.

We know for a fact that the oldest/first generations of hosts are constructed of metal and feature a much more robotic interior than the later, "white stuff" fabricated, hosts.

As for buildings, there is no evidence to support the idea that the buildings are made from the "white stuff", and there is actually evidence of the opposite; as seen through flashbacks, many of the buildings that stand have been around since the initial opening of the park (specifically in Sweetwater), long before the 'white stuff' technology was utilized.
