“Floating Islands and Flying bikes”
Re-thinking mobility: How floating cities can impact -and benefit from- aerial transportation.
Ancient cities were founded by communities of people who shared similar values in order to achieve progress together. Nowadays, these cities and the rules built around them dictate the way in which communities behave and grow. The same happened with aviation: what started as a search and expression for freedom has become today an industry struggling to evolve within its own tightly regulated ecosystem.
Autonomous vehicles and personal aerial transportation are needed technologies that have limited growth in urban areas with laws not designed for them. Independent floating cities will be the perfect environment to fast-track innovations that will help improve communications, ensure critical supplies and reduce the need for other infrastructure.
With planned missions to Mars by 2022 and big airships floating back again in the air as luxury hotels by 2020, will the Seasteading Institute be the precedent for the next “Skysteading” cities?
