When talking about Elon Musk, one has to admit the guy is a millipede with an untamable amount of energy.
(Tip; the twitter handle BoredElonMusk is a gem !)
His latest focal point are TBM’s, aka Tunnel Boring Machines.
The company is called: “The Boring Company” and as with almost every company he starts, there’s a competition!
This time it’s a race (km/h) between a snail (Gary) and a TBM (Godot).
Musk also gave a TED talk about the subject of tunneling (ofcourse from an USA perspective).
Very interesting story on popularmechanics about these ancient creatures.
4) He, what’s Steve Ballmer up to these days?
OK, USA facts; cool.
USAFacts was inspired by a conversation Steve Ballmer had with his wife. She wanted him to get more involved in philanthropic work. He thought it made sense to first find out what government does with the money it raises. Where does the money come from and where is it spent? Whom does it serve? And most importantly, what are the outcomes?
It is really nice to live in a country (USA) where all data is public.
But it is also nice to live in a country (NL) where privacy is still a thing…
The Precision Arduino Timing Relay Imaging Controller a.k.a. P.A.T.R.I.C. and a camera robot make this beautiful video, without the usual CGI 🙂
I love the fact that there was so many trail-and-error involved in making the below video.
