Inspired by Masdar City, Abu Dhabi.  Made with Blender, Antics & Lumion.  Took about 3 days and developed on my Toshiba i3 Satellite Laptop with ATI card.



Enjoy!

Hi arch_bd,

Yes, this is what the Masdar City is about.  I'm doing my own version to encompass more widely - to consider a new city and energy requirements, incl.  the design of the PRT system. 

Although it may be seen as being a little off topic I include the following very interesting video about Masdar City, 'a stones throw' from where I live in Abu Dhabi.

Very cool Blendman. It may be a challenge trying to find your car in the parking lot though. :D

Very true Derekw!  Actually asking people to give up their Holdens and Camry's esp.  weekend trips to the country, might also be a BIG task!

Really cool stuff here Blendman.  Kinda has a Tron feel in the night shots.  Great work.

Thanks Brian, interesting you should comment that it is a bit like Tron, because, although this was not the intention, the film has been an inspiration, (my other favourite is "Bladerunner") at least sub-consciously!
