SCIENCE FICTION, SCIENCE FUTURE

FEBRUARY 10 — MAY 13, 2018

Let your imagination run wild with a vision of the future you thought only existed in fiction.

If you thought teleportation, holograms, invisibility and mind control were only in the movies – think again. Science Fiction, Science Future features hands-on and full-body experiences incorporating robots, invisibility, mind control, holograms and augmented reality. In the exhibition, you will interact with a robot, design a cyborg, move a ball using your brain waves, experience the illusion of teleportation, watch yourself disappear and control computer actions with your eyes.

Are you ready for science fiction to become a reality?
