"[A] car company sponsoring a competition to dream up a vision of the future actually seems to make a lot of sense. The Audi Urban Future Award is a contest among six international architecture firms to envision futuristic cityscapes, circa 2030, with an emphasis on, ahem, personal transportation. ("Audi is confident that there will be cars in the city of the future," the competition Web site declares.)"

The design ideas submitted so far range from the seemingly practical to the ridiculous. Scientific American offers a rundown of some of the designs. Winner will be announced in August.
