Our offices here have fingerprint scanners for access control. Combine that with the smart-cards for metro payment (just wave your wallet at the sensor), all the high-rise buildings and the way everything is clean, modern, well lit at night; it does feel like I must have somehow just missed seeing the flying cars.

Oh, and there appears to be at least two M&S stores within easy walking distance of the hotel. That's real civilisation.
