ok i was looking at this website (they have some pretty cool stuff) and i found this and flipped out!
because:

1. "If for example, a building catches fire, the computer will not only sound the appropriate alarms, but also, light the way for the safest routes for the residents to escape and, divert road traffic so that fire trucks can access the building rapidly" is this not creepily like Tally's city? the city is run by a giant computer!!!!
2.  "In the future, through a system called Place Apps the 225,000 residents of PlanIT Valley will also be able to program their Smartphones to interact with the city's Urban OS and use it for things like switching on the oven or turning down the lights in their homes, from a remote location" INTERFACE RINGS!
3.  They also said it will be very environmentally friendly.  Not something nobody else has, but still.
