City Of Content

For the first time ever in London, Chavs will now be given automatic ASBO machines!

Watch Dogs-esque news today, as in September, Milton Keynes will become the first city to have a full network that can do things like "monitor parking spaces" and make "bins that signal when they need collecting", according to The Telegraph. So basically, this means that the city will be taken over by 10 year old "hackers" who will cause mass pileups. Hooray.

Seriously, though, this is a huge advancement in technology. BT and Cloud technology company Neul are working together to build a more efficient, safe and better city. This means that certain apps can activate when you go to certain areas or other things like that, e.g Park rules automatically appear on your phone when you enter a park, etc. And with telecommunications company Arqiva launching a similar network in May next year in 10 cities, this could be the start of a cool new future!

What do you guys think? Does making an automated city sound like a good idea? Or will it crash in a couple days? Tell us in the comment below!
