Science Fiction, Science Future

Traveling Exhibit Hall – Level 2

If you thought teleportation, holograms, invisibility and mind control were only in the movies - think again. Science Fiction, Science Future will allow you to move objects with your mind, disappear right before our eyes, interact with a robot that copies your movements and experience augmented reality in action.

When you look back at iconic works of science fiction, they often predict the innovations of the future. Tablet computers, GPS, automatic doors and even biometric health data tracking were all just figments of the imagination when they first appeared on Star Trek in the 1960s. Now, these are everyday technologies.

Science Fiction, Science Future gives you the chance to explore the innovations that classic science fiction predicted for our future while you imagine what comes next. How long do you think it will take for robots to walk the streets with us? They already build our cars and explore space. You could predict the next great invention!

In Science Fiction, Science Future you will also be able to draw and describe what you think houses, transportation and our planet will look like in the future – will we live on Mars, get around using jet-pack rockets, or have a robot cook our meals? It’s up to you to decide.
