The World’s First Smart City

Did you know that the world’s first smart city is being built next to Seoul? Songdo, is set to be completed by 2015 on reclaimed land from the Yellow sea and will include millions of wireless sensors and microchips that will include everything from your refrigerator letting you known when you run out of a certain food to your bathroom mirror showing you your physical health information. It incorporates the best of major cities around the world and thus has a canal, a central park, the ocean, a huge bridge and stunning towers. The central park is particularly interesting because it is designed so every resident can walk to work in the business district in less than 15 minutes through it. The city sits 3.5 hours by plane from 1/3 of the world’s population and only a 15 minute bus ride from the world’s top ranked airport, the Incheon International Airport.
