Cities of the Future Could Be in Space, And These Won’t Look Like Any Real Estate We Know Today

The concept of real estate is largely depending on how we are glued to earth!  What will it be if in the future we could forgo the glue of earth altogether and build a city in space?  The space elevator is a concept that is in science fiction realm, and today we don’t have anything like this yet.  Nonetheless, this space elevator concept could become true if we got the right materials and plan to make it a reality.  Once humans travel through space easily as if how one would take a bus or a train on earth, then the idea of living in space becomes rather mundane.

We humans always think that we need another planet out there to be a second earth, but what if the cost of building a city in space in a modular fashion in a sense that space elevator concept could expand into a space highway and such — wouldn’t this be more doable and cheaper and time-saving than trying to find a second earth?  So I would imagine that a highway system in space would function similar to space elevator but the system itself would be more expansive.  After all, a space elevator could be a quick fix for a short distance from one point in space to another point in space.  Perhaps, space highway is like a bigger, more durable space elevator, and the spaceships that travel through this space highway system won’t need to use a self-powered propulsion system to traverse quickly from one point in space to another point in space.  Wouldn’t this be fuel efficient?

Of course, we could argue that space highway is kind of stupid if spaceships could just fly freely in space without needing to stick to an asphalt.  Nonetheless, space highway could function as fuel saving mechanism/system and much more.  Spiritually, space highway could function as a system that turns the idea of space city into a real community/city.  Imagine how much more expensive to build a small earth in space, and so it’s not wise to do so.  Instead, each spaceship could act like a car, home, restaurant, and so on.  The space highway then acts as a highway system that connects the necessary points in space to form a loose space city system.  From this highway, a home in space could fly from one point to another without needing to use any fuel unless the home is going to fly off the space highway system.

I think a concept of loose space city system — if it’s a reality — could turn the idea of owning a piece of real estate upside down.  After all, everything would be floating in space and won’t stay put.  Furthermore, even the highway itself could be floating continuously, albeit that it would stay in the same large vicinity in space.  Once people actually live in such a space city, people won’t be able to differentiate a house from a car, a car from a restaurant, and so forth.  After all, humans in space would be in a spaceship most of the time.  So, humans in space would think their spaceship as either a home, a car in a space highway system, a business location, a restaurant to invite other humans to come to dine and so forth.

In summary, I think when people begin to think a city in space in a loose space city system, the real estate concept would be completely different than the one that we use for cities on a planet.  Of course, humans don’t have to stick to only one type of space city.  After all, we could find a second earth and create even more cities from far away in space.  In my opinion, a loose space city system could be the extra real estate for a closeby planet.  For an example, let’s say earth would run out of space and people could create extra space real estate by creating a loose space city system just right outside of earth.

Glorious 4K Time-lapse Video Of North America

Got a 4K display?  If not, you can watch 4K time-lapse video of North America in a less than 4K glorious resolution.  I’m sure it will be just as stunning as in 4K display.  This video brought to you by 3motion user on Vimeo, and I have no affiliation to this person or Vimeo whatsoever.  Nonetheless, it’s a cool video to share, and so check it out right after the break.  Enjoy!!!

Hermit North Korea’s Pyongyang In Detailed Time-lapse

In the West, North Korea is well known as a hermit kingdom.  Under a family dynasty, North Korea has seen the country is still being ruled by the Kim family.  Since North Korea is always secretive to the West, and so many people in the West aren’t so familiar with this country at all.  North Korea has always considered the United States and her allies as the enemies.  The West often regards North Korea as inhuman society since it’s being ruled by a family dynasty and not under the rule of law.  With so many barriers that prevent people from the outside looking in, North Korea is surely a hermit kingdom to the West.  Hermit as she is, someone had just made a detailed video of North Korea’s capital, Pyongyang, in professional time-lapse fashion.

Anno 2070 Gameplay Episode 01

Anno 2070 is another game which belongs to the same category as SimCity, Tropico, and other similar simulation type of games.  Nonetheless, each of these games that I’d mentioned are different somewhat from each other as each game presents a unique gameplay and various incorporated game elements.  For an example, in Tropico 4, the game prioritizes the happiness level of the population within the city through not only how the ruler of the city distributes resources but also through political elements such as improving factions’ standings.  Let say, if you aren’t friendly with the environmentalist faction but friendly to all other factions, even though the overall happiness of the city is above average, you might still see people (as in artificial intelligence of the game) decide to join the rebel force.  If the rebel force is in great number, they can gather a rebel army to attack you.  In Anno 2070, this game emphasizes more of the same theme, but it does with a point of view of building a futuristic city.  So, I definitely have some interest in playing this game further.  This means, you will see me make more gameplay of this very game.  Please enjoy the first episode of Anno 2070.
