You may look at the newly built, $200 million empty town in New Mexico and think it’s a great place to film a western movie or recreate scenes from “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly” but this town is only for science experiments. The 20-square-mile mock city, complete with highways, houses and commercial buildings was created by Washington, D.C.-based tech firm Pegasus Global Holdings.
Structures will be erected to model various styles, old and new, to make it more realistic. Its Stephen King-esque name, The Center, seems fitting of a city that will be home to no one. This will all let research institutions and private companies test new technologies in a real-world setting to perfect existing and new technologies.
