New-York 2030

By 2030, we will have substantial numbers of self-driving pods, most will have light rail too and a few cities might have Hyperloop-style rail. There will still be many conventional vehicles so it will be a diverse mixture. The skies won’t have flying cars but will have drones varying in size from small insects through to metres across, doing jobs like surveillance, security, delivery, building, decorating and maintenance.

There will also be a few robots doing tasks at street level such as cleaning and deliveries. Planes will look much like today, but there might be a few airships too. A few buildings in each continent will be over a kilometre tall but not many. In a few cases these will be spaceports, launching rockets for a fast-growing space industry.

Some new buildings will be very plain, with few architectural features, relying on augmented reality for their appearance. Augmented reality will already make streets seem full of beautiful people, celebs, cartoon characters, aliens and weird animals, as well as streets acting as art galleries.

Design predator All you saying already happening now robots autonomous cars and yes we will have flying car Elon mask is already building flying roadster 2025 will have all these and more 2030 will be more wilder than what u expecting specially by nanotechnology and human level intelligent ai and 3D printer 25 Feb 2019
El Barto I feel that the constant electrical expense( from who knows what power source) would, in the long term, be much more expensive than using the engineering prowess and beauty of the future to create great, tall buildings. This would be little more than a phase, most likely concentrated in East Asia, unless of course there are millions more American weaboos than there are now. 13 Feb 2019
Zach Nathan I do think VTOL will take off (no pun intended) in the next 10 years, though may only be for ride sharing infrastructure. 06 Feb 2019
