Smarter bricks

Imagine bricks (or blocks, in general, for building simple structures) that are not flat on the top and bottom, but have a surface on the top and bottom like the graph below.  This is z = cos(x) * cos(y)

The wave pattern of the bricks combined with gravity, will automatically align them. For simple structures it is likely that the weight will be enough to create a stable structure without the need for any mortar.
