These are very long term ideas. We first have to eliminate all currencies in the world. This will stop people trying to profit off of each other, it will eliminate all industries that do not help humans, it will eliminate war and poverty and crime because there will be no competition. Everyone will work together. People will not have to work nearly as much as they do now because machines will do so much work. In reality this can be achieved. But it will take a lot of education and political activism to change society up to this point.

The author shown many nice looking futuristic models of many type of structures (industrial, architecture, transportation, habitation, etc...). Unfortunately the idealistic ideas without realistic goals (at least for 100 years) would certainly impede the hope of achieving his ideas. As of today reality, It's more suitable for a futuristic theme park or science fiction mockup, although some rich Saudis or Chinese could build them for the look, there is no chance for it in few years.

Considering the advance of technology and higher education today and the time and life situation of Leonard Da Vinci, even at this unfair comparison, Leonard had not only drawn diagrams, made models of his inventions, he had proved his concepts with mathematical models. Sorry, I do like this author's ideas like Jules Verne or Asimov but he certainly not a new Leonardo.

I do like his scale models (maquettes)!
