Dubai: City of the Future?


Heaven defying architecture, 3-D printed buildings, self-driving cars & hyperloop transport. It's looks like the futuristic wishlist for tomorrow. But for Dubai Tomorrow is Today. And this emirates is taking the lead with countries project completed and planned. Now let's check out below that why Dubai is really the city of future?
Museum of the Future
'See the future, create the future'- that's the motto of the Museum of the Future, which is scheduled to open in 2018. But instead of showcasing the past artifacts, this museum will also showcase the future innovations as well.
Robot Olympics
This year Dubai plans to organize 'Robot Olympics' every two years. The games will include nine events starting from driverless car racing, manned drone races, unmanned drone races, robotic running, robotic soccer, robotic swimming, robotic table tennis, robotic wrestling, and even a "cybathion" event.
The Tower
Dubai's new architectural wonder is scheduled to be completed in 2020 which will be simply called 'The Tower at Dubai CreekHarbour'. The projected $1 billion-dollar spire is more of an ornamed than a functional building -a 928 meter sculpture in gleaming metal, cocooned in a webwork of cable stays. It will be 100 meters taller than the Burj Khalifa, and comes complete with a boutique hotel.
Hyperloop System
The Dubai Future Foundation will host a contest in September to design a Hyperloop system from Dubai to Fujairah- a distance of 105 Kilometers that could be covered in less than 10 minutes.
3D-Printed Architecture
Recently Dubai unveiled the world's first 3D-printed office building-a sleek, futuristic structure that took only 17 days and a handful of electricians and craftsmen to print, install, and equip for use.
Drone Prix
Dubai hosted the 'World Drone Prix' in March-the first of its kind. 150 competitors assembled to pit their drone-piloting skills against one another on a 591-meter, purposes-built aerial drone racing course.
Ziggurat Pyramid
Dubai's most ambitious project-if it's ever really undetaken-will be the Ziggurat Pyramid. Conceived as a pyramidal arcology capable of housing a population of 1 million souls, the Ziggurat Pyramid would be fully self-sufficient, using natural and renewable energy sources, and iwll eschew the need for fuel-burning vehicles altogether with an integrated 360 transportation system.
Self-Driving Cars by 2030
Emir of Dubai announced a push to have 25% of Dubai's transportation system using artificial intelligence and driverless systems by 2030.
The Man-Made Mountain
Dubai experiences four not-so-distinct seasons-dry and drier, hot and hotter. Dubai Government is seriously studying the prospect of building a rainfall-boosting, man-made mountain.
