For years I have though a project like this was impossible due to the limitations of the game. But after teaming up with some of the great Redstoners from the technical community I am proud the present the first ever Automatic Infinite Tunnel Bore Machine.

It slowly digs out a hole by sticking blocks it mines to the drillhead. When moving back the drill moves back to a station where all the mined blocks are carefully removed from the drill using two way flying machines. These blocks are then transported with a clever conveyor system and brought to a Withercage. The wither in this cage is then tricked with the help of snowballs into breaking these blocks. The blocks that are broken are collected by a hoppersystem which transports the items to and item-filter which neatly sorts everything mined into specific chests. All of this is done with conventional Redstone without the use of mods or command blocks.

Maintenance every now and then is required seeing as gravel and sand may cause the drillhead to get stuck due to the piston pushlimit. Same goes for lava and water which may cause unintended blockupdates on the drill. Also obsidian is obviously a block which cannot be mined.

This project is probably the coolest I have ever been a part of and I hope you take the opportunity to check out these awesome people.

That's a great breakthrough, the next challenge is to make it so survival-friendly that it will actually be worth building in survival. Maybe make it extendable somehow so that it will mine out more area, or try to make a faster bidirectional flying machine. Maybe the new observer blocks can help...

Note: Exiting the world before turning off the machine breaks it, but +1 diamond for you anyway!
