Since anyone with an internet connection and access to Wikipedia can edit articles, it's no surprise that there have been some interesting changes over the years, like this one, on the first law of thermodynamics. For those who don't know, it's a version of the law of conservation of energy, adapted for thermodynamic systems. The law of conservation of energy states that the total energy of an isolated system is constant; energy can be transformed from one form to another, but can be neither created nor destroyed.

The Boring Company

The Boring Company is not an internet meme, but rather an infrastructure and tunneling company founded by Elon Musk. The company has already started excavating a 30-foot wide, 50-foot long, and 15-foot deep "test trench" on the premises of SpaceX's offices in Los Angeles. The company's goal is to enhance tunneling speed enough such that establishing an underground network of tunnels is financially feasible. "If you think of tunnels going 10, 20, 30 layers deep (or more), it is obvious that going 3D down will encompass the needs of any city’s transport of arbitrary size," said Musk.

Solar 3D Printer

MIT researchers have just created a solar-powered robot that can 3D print the entire basic structure of a building using on-site materials. A user could customize the structure any way they see fit, thanks to a vehicle with one large robotic arm with a second smaller and more precise arm at the end. The vehicle also comes equipped with a scoop, so that it can help prepare the building area and pick up building materials on its own. They recently showcased the technology by building a 12-foot high, 50-foot wide dome out of foam-insulation framework, in just 14-hours.
