The Too Smart City

Can a city be too smart?  This exhibition shows urban technology that is “too smart,” such as bench that ejects the sitter after an allotted time to combat vagrancy.  There is also the trash can that ejects trash.

The designers of the exhibition say the message is that technology will not be the panacea to all the urban problems, and that there’s a point where too much technology becomes useless.
