Software has eaten the world. AI, crypto, and Web3 may be capturing the zeitgeist, but there is a growing focus on revolutionizing the physical systems that support and improve our lives.

These complex hardware projects are some of the most difficult in history, but if successful, will fundamentally shift how we power, connect, and explore the world.
