Futuristic atmosphere along the Yellow Sea where they was nothing 10 years ago, that’s Songdo ! 60 kilometers from Seoul, Songdo is the new playground of Cisco, the compagny that created the « ideal city » in 2003. This first big « Smart City » has now copies around the world.
Songdo has been designed with sensors to monitor temperature, energy use and traffic flow. A lot of these innovations are designed with the environment in mind.The waste disposal system is also impressive. There are no rubbish trucks trawling the streets or vast bins dotted around blocks of flats. Instead, all household waste is sucked directly from individual kitchens through a vast underground network of tunnels, to waste processing centres, where it's automatically sorted, deodorised and treated to be kinder to the environment.
But apartments are all the same in big towers ! Korean famillies love the ultra-security even if they are controlled by the digital dictatorship.
