Robots!!! We are in Japan, dontcha know?

There will be future posts from Miraikan. There was so much to see and do that I want to break different sections down into separate posts.
Above is ASIMO. You may have seen her on the news. She is a robot that moves kind of like a human. It kind of troubled me a bit. When she walked toward us I kept thinking, "Must kill humanoid!"

She is kicking a ball in the photo above. It is just a regular ball, it just looks like a glowing ball in the picture.

If you go, you can catch the ASIMO show at 11:00 and 14:00. It is worth seeing it!

This may not be the best picture to show it, but the above little vehicle kind of floats above that track. It works on magnets. Those kids are controlling it.

More fun with magnets! You can control these little hover-craft like things.
This is another robot demonstration.
This display is kind of neat, even if those dolls are kind of creepy. There are two microphones on either side. When you talk into them, the dolls and the robot appear to be you talking.
