Cyberpunk Sunday 2.017 - Smog, Trees and Virtual Reality.
Ah smog. Smog on the level that they had to make new systems to measure it because it blew the old system away. China has the smog in spades. Of course this is what you get from unchecked air pollution and letting companies do whatever they want. This could be the future of the air we breathe as we roll on into the future. Where what looks like a morning fog is a actually a choking haze of air pollution that is good for nobody.

Okay but then again maybe not. Detroit, the biggest stretch of pock marked rusted America in the rust belt. Where they've lost about half their population and the city is a showcase of urban blight.... is getting a bit greener. A private company is buying up abandoned property in some of the worst areas, cleaning it up and... planting trees. There is some interesting ideas going along with it and their plans for the future.

Another Twitter feed recommendation. VR Breaking News covers all the current developments in the VR field after it's seen a recent resurrection from 90's abandoned development hell. With things like the Oculus Rift and console systems looking into the technology things are moving forward quite rapidly again. This feed posts enough links that I could make every Cyberpunk Sunday a VR Sunday and still have some extras left over.
