Seattle’s skylines and auto restaurants

As soon as you step into the city as a tourist, you hear a gentle song welcoming you to paradise. Before your eyes is a forest of high-rise buildings, alike famous Jeddah Tower. Nearly 1 km high the tallest skyscraper in the city makes the Space Needle seem insignificant. As you step down, the passenger car retreats and two fluttering robots fly over to get information from you and play tourist guide. In front of you are flying cars, the second most popular vehicle in the city, after underground transportation. Downtown are auto restaurants, where you just sit and choose dishes, quantity, and temperature, after which your dinner will be served as soon as possible. Finally, you pay with your card and leave.

Levi It could happen, but remember how back to the future was so wrong?

Lion Kimbro Just No. I live in Seattle, and I just don't see any way that this could happen, even given twenty years. I wish the "gentle song welcoming you to paradise" were the reason why -- I see it as all too possible, though, and I really wish they would rather not. It would be the next evolution of the Duck rides. I'm not sure if the Seattle Freeze will be thawed in 20 years, and until it does, I don't think talk of "paradise" will be quite welcomed by the residents. As for the flying cars and the tall buildings, that looks like a danger and a lot of noise -- assuming you are using the drone model of flying cars. And for the underground network of transportation, I and others have wished for that for decades in Seattle, but the political will isn't there. That could change as the I-5 traffic gets worse and worse, but for the time being, there are tons of people who don't want to invest in underground, thanks to the failure of Bertha. I can easily imagine surface metro and the Link being extended -- something I think is practically guaranteed. Maybe Elon Musk will change our minds. The food thing is right out, though -- we love our dining, we love our cooks, and the food isn't fuel. That's just a misunderstanding about human interactions with food -- which is mainly about bonding and connecting and enjoying together. There are places for instant food experiences, but tourists aren't going to be interested in that -- that's like traveling to, say, Italy, so that you can sample their McDonalds.

Makayla I don't agree with the flying cars because I don't think it's probable in 2050 as our helicopters and small drones now are very loud, a flying car would just be too disruptive.

Dominic N Knecht I disagree with the part where the robots will be your guide and that a song will playing through out the whole city I am assuming. I also disagree because it sounds pretty unrealistic but you have a great imagination

Marriette Deckard I will echo others and suggest that it will not be done with cards but with a bio-metric chip implant and sensors built into the interfaces. I am doubting a super high tower will be necessary in Seattle but anything is possible as it becomes a life-boat city when the knock -on effects of climate change kick in and people start migrating to it, despite sea level rise.

Lordlimabean Cards will not be used, it will be via phones or equivelant personal devices, such as ar headsets. Flying cars will not be popular, but automated flying vehicles may be used to supplement ferry rides. Self driving cars and low cost tunnels will fill the city with likely cheaper and higher profit transpotation.

Patrick Harper Doubt a building 1km high will be built anywhere except vancouver bc. Plenty of pop, not enough mid-teir economic reasons.

Axel Great vision but paying with a "card" will soon be obsolete. Credits will be transferred either through your mobile device or your biometric id chip
