Meeting Asimo san

We went to Miraikan – National Museum of Science and Technology. The building is quite strange in architecture – cylindrical with glass walls all around. A number of exhibition areas inside. There are various shows and demonstrations everyday. We were quite late , so missed some shows. We missed the show of life science – I was expecting to see dinosaurs. Never mind.
 
However, the most exciting experience of the day was meeting Asimo san – the famous humanoid robot of Japan. There was a 10 min show of Asimo. Asimo entered into the arena with big cheer up and applause. He is a short white guy with a shiny black face. Amazing – the movements are so smoothly humanoid ! It can walk, talk, play, dance, stand on 1 foot, climb up and down stairs. Asimo speaks in Japanese and the demostration was in Japanese so I dint understand much. But things sounded interesting.
 
There are few other robots also in display including the pet dog robots. Theres is a lab for making robots.
 
From environmental science to life science to space science to information technologies – there were several things to see and learn. The museum is free for kids on Saturday. So we saw a lot of cute Japanese kids also
