The future of cities

Although it relies far too much on cliched stock footage, the latest video from Arup that suggests how embedded networks of tags and sensors will allow cities to monitor themselves and improve efficiencies - particularly in the reduction of their environmental footprints. They say that urban design and communication technology can help us achieve gains and that tracking our energy consumption cities can inform and inspire consumer behavior. The film also looks at other issues including energy security, transportation, urban sprawl, consumption and waste.
