Seeing Beyond Tomorrow

Miraikan literally means the museum of the future. It is Japan's National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation located at Odaiba, Tokyo.

The architecture of the building is considered contemporary in an oval shape with glass panels all round. I think the plan resembles the shape of a leaf.




Under the warm evening sun, the building shines with a golden glow.




The high ceiling of the foyer is decorated with ornaments in the shape of a leaf.




The well-known Geo-cosmos globe displays the weather image of the world at almost real time. It changes in display in random for the global sea temperature sometimes.






This is a model of the Space Station Skylab.




And this was where the astronauts went to drop their droppings.




There is also a physical model showing how information is transmitted and received through the Internet.




This is a cube with 3D dancing lights.




The exhibits are not for your eyes only, they are for you to try out and understand the theory and logic behind each exhibit. This is a remote-controlled surgery robot, but of course your hands-on experience is not to lie down on the surgery table.




One of the highlights at the museum is the Asimo robot, which is the favourite display of the young and the young-at-heart.

Hi CK, very informative post. Regarding the place where they drop their dropping, it seems to take them ages for potty training.
