5 Reasons Why Dubai Is The City Of Future You Can’t Reject


We in NEXTER already think about visiting the UAE, and you?

The Smart Dubai initiative fulfills the vision of His Highness “to make Dubai the happiest city on Earth”. Numerous inventions were developed and trialed as part of Smart Dubai initiative.

1. Smart Palms

“Smart Palm is a green self-sustainable device recharge station and info point with complimentary Wi-Fi access”, – explained on its official site.

These high-tech stations were set up on the beaches and public places of the megapolis. They are equipped with panels to provide complete power autonomy. With their help you can connect to the Internet for free through the WiFi access point, recharge the smartphone while relaxing or reading information on interactive touch screens.

2. Airport’s virtual aquarium tunnel for face recognition

Instead of long waiting at security counters or pass through e-gates, virtual fish will scan your face as you walk through the tunnel. The tunnels will be equipped with 80 cameras. The screens can display a simulation of a real-life aquarium, various landscapes or advertising in high quality.

If the traveller is registered successfully, they will see a green sign. If the person had some troubles, a red alert will notify about it.

3. Volocopter as a flying taxi

Unmanned air taxi created by Volocopter company tested flighting in Dubai. The vehicle looks like a big drone with a cabin for two passengers. It can fly only for 30 minutes so you can take this taxi to another city. But the developers hope to increase the flying time and have a sit for pilot.
