AEROTROPOLIS - DESERT CITY OF THE FUTURE - UPDATED

Dear Lumion-Heads,

An updated (28 February, 2014) short movie of an Aerotropolis design for the Gharbia Western region of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, UAE.   This fly-through (see below) is an overview of a major design thesis undertaken as part of Masters of Landscape Architecture degree.

The design is inspired by John D. Kasarda.  For some it seems quite perplexing just what the 'strange' flying vehicles are, leaving each of the residential 'petal' communities.  To make this more clearer, in context with this emerging technological design, and the Aerotropolis design, I have updated the fly-through to include the Personal Air and Land Vehicle (the PAL-V) being developed by the Dutch company PAL-V.   It is based around the emerging technologies of the Personal Air and Land Vehicle - the PAL-V - being developed by the Dutch company PAL-V.

It follows almost a decade of urban planning/urban design working experience in the Arabic Gulf Region.   Made with Blender 3D, Sketchup Pro, and Lumion 2.5.  About 3 months of work.  Compiled on my Toshiba Satellite laptop i3 Processor and built in ATI Radeon card.

Thanks Speed777777

You can buy the PAL-V for approximately 200 grand.   Check the web site for a more accurate price. I have put in an order 2 + for the family cat!  Joke!  :-D

Nice work Blendman! And thanks for the info on the flying car. I hope these cars are solar propelled and not dependent on aero fuel. I can't imagine how many would crash land because one has run out of fuel.

Good to hear from you Aliki_N!   :)

Yes, I don't know what type of fuel the PAL-V uses.  The good news is that alternative energy technology is developing rapidly,  so like the car, you can expect significant changes to aircraft too.
