Future World Vision


Welcome to Mega City

The year is 2070. Your neighborhood is always changing. Your city is ever growing. Resources are limited, the climate is stressed. Yet innovation and automation are everywhere. Personal transport pods. Drone deliveries. The lines between AR and IRL are blurred. The world is transformed, but the role of cities remains the same: to connect us and keep us safe and healthy so we can live, work, play, and learn.
