Tuesday Travel Inspiration: Welcome to the Future
The future: we always dream about it, and we love to toy around with ideas of how it will be. Will cars fly? Will we be able to clone ourselves at leisure? Will aliens visit us? Sometimes we get so into these ideas that we don't realise that 2015 is looking pretty futuristic, starting from Singapore's bionic trees!
Part of a 1 billion dollar project for the city, these incredibly tall trees mimic the ecological functions of real trees. For example, they are powered by the sun, just like real trees absorb sunrays - the only difference is that the energy these trees absorb make them light up at night, giving us a spectacular show.
You can find these Super Trees at South Bay, in Singapore. Meanwhile, you can find me next to my car, patiently waiting for it to sprout wings. Happy Tuesday!
