City Engine

I'm barely even sure what to say about this stuff. Yes, they are just plain cool... that's obvious. But more than that, I wonder if both products might just represent a sea change in the way we create. 

Not much description is necessary... just watch. First, City Engine, which procedurally constructs complex 3D cities. And then ILoveSketch, which allows artists to draw 3D models with––

Nevermind... just watch. And thanks Kevin, for pointing both products out!

I use CityEngine to pre-prototype / pre-visualize urban concepts. It allows to load real world vector data from OSM or any ESRI GIS source and mix it with whatever new stuff you come up with ... be it new 3D models, new rules or just add your own attributes to the data and see how it can affect the city generation algorithm.
Truly amazing and worthwhile to check it out
