4 tips for a Smart City Summer

Featured image

We have created a little list for everyone that’s out and about in the Amsterdam region this summer and can’t quite let go of his or her love for Smart City concepts. Let us know what you thought of the experience.

1.NEMO Bits of You
This exhibition is for all grown ups that want to learn how the data trace they leave behind on a daily basis impacts their life. And it gives you the possibility to think of smart data solutions that are already running in the Amsterdam region or could be implemented. Doors are open from Wednesday until Sunday at the Marineterrein Living Lab area.

2.Worlds first 3D printed bridge
Be like the queen, glide over the world’s first 3D printed stainless steel bridge located in the middle of the red light district. The team behind the bridge claimed the technique showed how 3D-printing technology can lead to more efficient structures that use less material.

3. Walking towards the future #1: data walk
From Floppy Disks to USB-Sticks to data storage in ‘the Cloud’- a term that makes us stare into the distance with a dreamy look on our face. Data centres are rising and store everything from our cute cat video’s to personal medical records. Take the Interactive Data Walk (in Dutch) and learn about its effects on the climate, our water and maybe even rethink your online future.

4.Move Amsterdam – the Smart Mobility Experience
A car without a steering wheel, and a game that tests how fast you can brake. The Mobility Experience is a challenging exhibition about the future of mobility. You’ll discover what it’s like to ride in a self-driving car and calculate how far you can drive with an electric car. Slam on the brake pedal of a gigantic electric engine and bike through the city of the future. Bring inquisitive children. Open on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday.
