Dubai, The Future City

Dubai is Crazy.  Ever since they discovered oil back in 1966, this little city in the desert has transformed into a mecca of extreme engineering.  They have an indoor ski resort (with penguins), man-made islands, underground highways, and even the tallest building in the world.

I recently stumbled across this 360 panoramic site that lets you explore Dubai (and many other great sites) from the air.

They seem to have completely terraformed this place into one of the most high-tech cities in the world.  It makes me think we could do this do Mars’ desert surface one day…
