Factory Inside
Factory Outside


Our factory would be located underground for two reasons, energy and transportation. We would gather and use geothermal energy in the factory. Its renewable, cheap and environmentally friendly. We would transport the end product using underground vacuum tunnels. Magnet rails in a vacuum are one of the fastest ways to travel around Earth as there is no wind resistance or traction. Each lane would have a series of airtight doors throughout it, so if there was a vacuum breach the whole tunnel would not lose pressure. In the factory, there will be many machines working on the product at once to save time, if a machine starts to break the factory can 3D print a new part locally before machine failure. The factory drones will then fix the machine, maximising efficiency. Our example product would be a   phone that you could repair by sliding out the old part for the new piece. Every country would have multiple storage facilities that would monitor the demand for pieces needed in their area. Since the machines are controlled by  AI they can Change products to meet the market
