The World Islands is a collection of man-made islands shaped into the continents of the world, located 4 kms off Jumeeirah, Dubai. It consists of 300 small private artificial islands divided into four categories - private homes, estate homes, dream resorts and community islands. It is expected to be complete by 2008 and several celebrities including Richard Branson have already purchased their own islands. Image shows a ship building one of the 300 islands.



The same image, when you zoom out.
Reminds me of the scene in "Superman Returns" where Lex Luthor shows Louis how the world will look afterhe builds his kryptonite island. Unmistakably similar.
