22Mar11

It’s hard not to notice Qatar’s prominent position in the Middle East and the Indian Peninsula.

Today Al Jazzera English has showed off Qatar’s innovative artificial mechanical and remote-controlled cloud that will be used to ensure shades above the stadium hosting matches at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
The cost of the project is currently 500,000 dollars, though the figure is likely to come down when commercial models are launched.

Saud Abdul Ghani, head of the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering department at Qatar University, is quoted as saying his group would collaborate with the Qatar Science and Technology Park.
