Imagine a city with city-wide broadband, advanced security, "smart" parking lots, and "apps-on-tap" for businesses. A city where nightly laser light shows light up the sky and project images on buildings. That dream, will soon become a reality in Malaysia, where the government is building i-City, a 72-acre urban township that features a 1,000ft pedestrian street mall (called "CityWalk"), houses, shop offices, corporate offices, a retail mall, serviced residences, a hotel, an innovation center and an "intelligent school."
i-City will feature wireless network that will manage devices for security and traffic monitoring, and for parking payments. According to The Star Online, the project will take eight to 10 years but the first phase will be completed by the end of next year.
