    That sounds really quite interesting - especially with the first driverless cars getting licenses. How great would it be to have a car that can drive you without any continuous input - not least because of the reduced traffic jams and accidents!

    Meanwhile there are 3.5 million homeless people in America, of those 1.5 million are children.

    Yes social housing in the US is pretty poor, mind you I think we are catching up with them. I know the homless in Las Vegas mainly reside (couple of Thousand) in the storm drains and some get drowned in the flash floods when they it rains.

    The entire concept is pretty obscene considering the poverty endemic in the USA. :blush:

    Wottalottacobblers! :D

    A city is nothing without people so any studies without the human factor is pretty much a waste of time imo

    Ok, maybe some technology could be tested in that sterile enviroment but a whole city?

    Pack yer suitcase Fred, we're off to do a bit of squatting... ;)
