Living walls and self-healing concrete are the future of architecture

Smart street lights | JWT Intelligence | Futurewaves | Scoop.it

Various cities are turning to intelligent, Internet-enabled street lights in an attempt to improve efficiency and data-gathering capabilities. The City of London recently announced it will spend £3.25 million to install 14,000 “smart street lights” that can alert technicians via an iPad app when they need to be repaired or replaced. Workers can adjust the output of each light through the app, allowing for greater energy efficiency. The system is expected to save £420,000 a year in energy bills beginning in 2015.
