Cities of the future: must have driverless pods!

No, they don’t, really. But I would really like it if they did. So while I enjoyed Lord Foster’s talk today at his new Winspear Opera House for all sorts of reasons (and more on that soon), I got most excited about Masdar, a new town being built outside Abu Dhabi. Street level raised 25 feet to get to cooler air! All streets pedestrian-only! Narrow, shaded walkways evoking a traditional souk atmosphere! And… pods! Check out this video.
