Future in the High Tower

Now this is a Tower! 

If we survive, it seems likely that, with ever greater populations, we're going to go ever more vertical in our living spaces, culminating in ideas like this: Tower Cities. I've seen several versions of this concept, and they're all spectacular. Highly fictionalized and no where near real, but still, incredible. It makes tons of sense to concentrate urban environments vertically, rather than horizontally, which we do now, of course. Just not to this degree. As with most cool things these days, it will be the Japanese or Chinese who try it first. Good luck!

But where are the flying cars?

This might be a semantical technicality, but, lower left corner. Flying boat buses.
