Japan has a reputation for being very technologically advanced and futuristic, especially in the Tokyo area. I was wondering if you think there is a country even more advanced than Japan? I hear Finland is up there too. What are your thoughts?

Japan for daily gadgets, USA for military gadgets.

Australia's cityscapes look the most flashy and modern, up there with Japan and parts of China.

But the US still in terms of overall technology though, the Internet, the military, genetic engineering, everything. The UK is up there too.

Default Scandinavia

I believe the Scandinavian countries have emerged as the most tech advanced, but not one of them is on on the poll. I voted Finland as this is the closest, and on-par with Sweden and Norway.

What do you mean by : "most technoligally advanced country" ? It is about the companies involved in the hi tech industry or the population and their possibility to have got hi tech stuff ? IT's two different matters

Japan has to win on on gadgets and broadband. Japan has launched a satelite into space that will cover all of Japan and many asian countries with 1.2gb per second broadband on the move.

I agree- for gadgets and sorts, and other out-of-the-box elements, Japan is among the most advanced. Hong Kong too.
But for other things, the US is the most ground-breaking. Can't quite elevate the UK to that spot though.

I think the most advanced country in technology is USA. and I don't think Japan can compete. Actually i see the japan as much as developped about advanced technologies at the same level than countries such Germany and France. Actually, I'd say in some fileds Germany and France are more advanced than Japan.
