Visit one of Dubai’s many beaches and you may spot a tall white tree-like structure. Apart from providing shade, it also gives information, WiFi and data through its touch screen to tourists and visitors. You can even charge your phone on one of these structures. The best part? It is all powered by the sun.
Dubai is experimenting with different technologies, from flying passenger drones to solar-powered vertical farms, as it pushes ahead to become a city of the future.
Similarly, Singapore is also testing out driverless cars and using big data to better manage its urban landscape as technologies change the way we live and work.
