Back then, when i took “Seminar Studi Futuristik” class on my 7th semester (about a year ago), i had no idea that this class will be so much fun.
By turn, the students presented his/her one big invention for future city. Not actually his/her own invention for sure, but an invention from the internet, haha.. Since presenting the idea became our obligation in this class, we named it ours then 😀
It is so much fun to see other student’s ‘invention’. But the biggest fun i had of course from my ‘invention’ itself.
My big invention is the one that i thought the best *Everybody thought so of his/her own ‘invention’ 😀
I was quite sure about that because after my presentation, my lecturer asked me again about my ‘invention’s name while his face expressed some curiosity. I was guessing that he would browse it on the internet after class 🙂
Its name is The Green Mega City (from Cliff Kuang). It combines many smart innovations from the scientists, engineers and designers for a sophisticated yet energy-saving future city, considering later the population is getting bigger and the needs of its people are also increasing drastically.
The idea was so comprehensive. Starting from the transportation, it offers electric city car or POD car, driverless bus, and Maglev Skytrans. For recreation, it has power sidewalks and algae park. To fulfill the needs of food, there are vertical farm and ocean on tap. And for refueling, it uses energy paint, tidal turbine and wave machine. All innovations scattered prevalently on the downtown, pedestrian area, farms, housing area, office area, etc.
I think you should also go check it out by yourself here. You have to see it by yourself.
Now I feel that the future seems so bright! *dazzling*
Note: on September-October 2014, the link was still working and the presentation was still available. But when I checked it last week, unfortunately Popsci have removed it and sadly, the presentation I saved was in my laptop which was stolen a few years ago and I didn’t have any backup. I apologize for not being able to help you when many people came across my blog to find that information. I really hope they republish it.
