Tech Company Builds A Ghost Town In New Mexico
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
New Mexico wants to make itself a home for new technology. So it's welcoming a tech company that wants to build an entire new city with no residents. The company plans a 20-square-mile model metropolis. This new town would be designed to test everything from renewable energy to intelligent traffic systems to new wireless networks. All these ideas would be tested in a $200 million ghost town - a little like a movie set.
It's MORNING EDITION.
