Two I can think of are Dubai and Shanghai. What other cities have a very scifi/futuristic look and feel to them?

Tokyo especially the Odaiba area at night. I remember there used to be a giant Gundam structure over there. Akihabara also, due to the concentration of electronic shops. And the Shibuya-Shinjuku crossing. The flashing lights, electronic billboards and crowd.

Singapore at night looks and feels very modern & ultra stylish.

We need to stop polluting the oceans, endangering the sci-fish.

When a South Dakota farmer gets in his pickup truck, the doors all automatically lock after 15 seconds, to protect him from gangs of roving thugs when he drives through the ghetto. That's pretty well over the top in sci-fi. And his truck backs into a parking space by itself down at the co-op elevator. So, irelative to what the general population needs, Hampden, South Dakota is about as excessively sci-fi and futuristic as it gets.

I don't know about now, but when we used to transpac from Indonesia to LA in the 1980s, we'd stop in Tokyo...and that place was DANG futuristic.

I would add Atlanta and Miami to that list, since Dallas and Houston are on there.

Basically this. I would say Tokyo, Seoul, Hong Kong, Dubai and Shang Hai would be the top 5 in that order.

Davy's list is so biased to the US.. Seattle, Houston, Dallas and Chicago don't appear very futuristic to me in the same way New York does.. unless they have their own versions of Times Square.. definitely not on the same level as Tokyo.

I don't think NYC seems that futuristic. Modern yes, but not futuristic. Because if NYC is really futuristic then I could consider dozens of other cities as well like Chicago, Toronto, Vancouver, London, Berlin, etc.

I have heard Tokyo feels extremely futuristic.
