Tokyo!

Like someone said in this thread, even toilets are futuristic. I was there in 2006, and after I shit into the toilet, theres a button for the water to spray out and clean your bottom, making the lack of toilet paper, not a problem!

Hong Kong:

Even without futuristic toilets at least we have Octopus Cards. One swipe and you can shop, eat, pay the bus fare, pay at vending machines, taking office attendance......so much more stuff. But Tokyo and Singapore have those too.

I'm not really sure who's the next, perhaps Shanghai, or Singapore.

By the looks of these pictures people think the future is an exaggerated version of the present?

Taller?

Bigger?

More congested?

brighter?

newer?

Thats my idea of a present day city. Full of flaws and completely contributing to damaging the planet irrevocably.
My hopes for futuristic cities arere that they will be:

Sustainable

Compact

walkable with good public transport

respectful of heritage and good recycling of old buildings

green!


I would say the most futiistic cities by that definition are ones a bit like this - I can only hope this is a vision of the future:

I think Hong Kong starts to lose out primarily because of its train system. Shanghai is already using the Maglev (Magnetic levitation) technology, while HK still uses the old "Track" technology.

The trains in HK that run from City to airport run at an operational speed of 135 km/ hr. Maglev? 431 km/hr. More than 3 times of that in HK.

In other words, people would have to take more time to travel from airport to city. Shanghai's Maglev only needs 8 minutes to run through 30 km of track. HK? 23 minutes for 36 km of track.

So yes, Shanghai is starting to boom up, while Tokyo is still maintaining top spot. Hope HK gets more projects done to keep up before it too, gets outclassed.
