Pegasus Global Holdings (us neither) wants to build "The Center" -- an ominously named ghost town on the New Mexico plains. The 20 square mile development will be theoretically capable of housing 35,000 people but will remain deliberately devoid of inhabitants. Instead, it'll be rented out to companies wanting to test their technology in a real urban environment, rather than just testing it out in a real urban environment. Companies can examine things like residential solar panel efficiency, smart traffic systems or the best way to secure wireless networks in dense areas. Presumably doing that in Detroit would be too expensive, or something.
