The green venture is part of the Saudi Vision 2030 plan, which aims to transform the country into a global superpower thanks to sky-high funding from the sale of oil, gas and the latest technology. The largest technology companies in the world are or will be involved in the project, including Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Apple, Facebook, etc. The common goal is to build a metropolis for the 21st century, in which the most futuristic achievements will be used on a daily basis for the good of humanity.
Ultimately, NEOM is to have an area 50 times larger than bluetech digital Within its borders and an additional 8,000 square kilometers, there will be tourist lands, where travelers will be able to admire natural wonders that cannot be found anywhere else on Earth. There are 50 islands, volcanoes, coral reefs, wildlife and anything else you could wish for, just like in a biblical paradise.
Prince Muhammad ibn Salman, heir to the Saudi throne, has just unveiled a new NEOM project called The Line. It is a line of super-fast communication that will stretch over a distance of 170 kilometers. The cities of the future will be built next to it. It is to be their artery and the most important point. Emission-free underground transport will solve all problems with traffic jams and waste of time. The entire project is to be truly ecological.
Dozens, and ultimately hundreds of millions of people, will live in the city. We all know how cosmic Dubai looks like. At NEOM it is supposed to be the Middle Ages. A fleet of autonomous cars and taxis is to be available in the city, as well as Hyperloop and flying taxis that will connect Saudi Arabia with the rest of the world. On a daily basis, experiments are to be conducted there to genetically modify people and turn us into cyborgs.
An artificial moon will tower over the city, which will illuminate it at night, so that it will never fall asleep. There will also be an artificial sun in the future. Special neighborhoods will be created in NEOM where conservative Arab law will not apply. In these places you will be able to drink alcohol without moderation, play in various clubs and use the services of prostitutes. It is supposed to be a real paradise on Earth for tourists from all over the world and an incentive to visit them frequently and even to settle there.
The city will offer a completely different level of education than in the rest of the world. Students will be able to enjoy the benefits of the latest technology, such as 5G and 6G networks, robots, holographic projectors, supercomputers, artificial intelligence and finally brain-computer interfaces. And all this is to assimilate knowledge as quickly and effectively as possible, which they will be able to use in the future to enrich the metropolis with their creative thought.
The Saudis want to spend 500 billion dollars on its construction and development only at the very beginning. It will all be possible thanks to SoftBank Vision Fund and the ARAMCO concern. Analysts predict that it will become the largest on the market in the coming years.
Technological giants are to build there centers of the latest technology from the world of robots, artificial intelligence, biotechnology and the space industry. Megacity will be fully autonomous and ecological. NEOM citizens will live in smart and ecological houses, because they are powered by renewable energy, coming from solar parks and wind farms. Urban transport is to be fully electric and autonomous.
Let us remind you that Arabia, like the United Arab Emirates, also has slightly larger plans, because they concern space, and more precisely Mars. This desert country wants to build luxury hotels and hospitals in Earth's orbit, as well as a city in the Martian desert, over the next 100 years.
