For this moment, definitely NOT Dubai. There are many cities much more futuristic than Dubai. In near future, Dubai still didn't stand any chance to become world most futuristic city

Well there's Microsoft and Bill Gates' wired home in Medina. But other than that, Seattle isn't that futuristic looking if you compared it with Asian cities.

^Compared to anything in North America Seattle is very futuristic--compared to Asia, what with the likes of Tokyo, Shanghai, Osaka, HK, etc. it falls out of the competition. Then again as it is an asian/north american gateway it sort of reflects both styles.

It's not necessarily how futuristic a city looks. I'm looking for Microsoft's legacy in the area, such as free public wifi access, donations for technology education in schools, using Seattle as a test bed for new technologies, etc.
