New Mexico Builds Empty Town for Tech Science Tests

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

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.
