A 'ghost town' is being built in America to test out the latest technologies such as renewable energies and terrorism security systems.

It'll look just like a city with roads, houses and buildings - but no one will live there.

Scientists want to use it to see the effects of new technology in a 'real world' setting.

It's being built in Lea County, New Mexico, and will cost around £600 million.

Big tech company Pegasus Global Holdings is behind the project.

Anything from smart grids and next-generation wireless networks to self-flushing toilets could be tested in the new town.

"The only thing we won't be doing is destructive testing, blowing things up - I hope," said Robert Brumley from Pegasus.

Work is due to begin on the town at the end of June.

This has to be funded with tax money

Gov. Martinez joined officials in announcing final site selection for the project, which she hailed as “one of the most unique and innovative” economic development projects the state has seen. She noted that no tax breaks were given for the development. “The only thing they have asked for is guidance,” she said.

Brumley said plans are to break ground on the town by June 30. The initial development cost is estimated at $400 million, although Brumley estimates the overall investment in the project to top $1 billion.

The project is expected to create 350 permanent jobs and about 3,500 indirect jobs in its design, development, construction and ongoing operational phases.

You're right. How dare a private company invest it's own money on a project that it deems to be beneficial to said company. While at the same time injecting millions into the local economy and employing almost 4000 people. :yell:

lol ryder thats how they get in. I suppose the guidance is free. Free from the government

And once they start guiding and the money runs out who will then come to the rescue


You maybe right tho. I dont know

Just my opinion.

But nowadays $600 million just about gets you a handful of mansions a few performance car's and a yacht or two if you are shrewd.

Even a $billion investment is not a great deal of money for what they plan

In the Uk when the Olympics was up for tender the bid for it was £4.5 billion
When they got the ok it went up to £20 Billion in slow increments over a year. Oh one of the best of the excuse's, was they forgot to add VAT

A few stadiums £20 Billion.

Trust me by the time they are done with guidance it will cost central gov a lot of money.

But I am just being a realist so I could be wrong
