Future World: Where Art Meets Science

Went to ArtScience Museum's Future World: Where Art Meets Science today with G.
The exhibition is divided into four themes - Nature, Town, Park and Space.
The first theme that we went in was Nature.
It was like stepping into a digital garden with flowers carpeting the floor and walls.

Next, we experienced the impact of climate change in 100 Years Sea Animation Diorama.
The film is based on scientific data derived from the World Wildlife Foundation (WWF).

The second theme is Town.
This zone is filled with fun activities where the kids can get interactive with the digital technology.
The below is called the 'Connecting Train Block', whereby you can move the blocks to make tracks for the train to move about.

Next is the 'Sketch Town'.
G and I thought this is interesting so we also selected our own paper drawing and start coloring it.
Crayons are provided.
After you done with coloring, there is a scanner whereby you scanned your colored drawings and bring it to life in the Sketch Town.

My rainbow house.

Which turn into a 3D landmark in the Sketch Town. :D

This is the 'Media Block Chair'.
You will be able to create playful and vibrant structures from stacking blocks that glow and change colour when you connect them together.

'A Table Where Little People Live' is where the actions of the llittle people change in response to the shape and color of the objects, becoming more animated as you introduce more and more objects into their world.

The third theme is Park.
The 'Universe of Water Particles' is a seven-metre tall virtual waterfall.

You can customized your own hopscotch game at 'Create! Hopscotch for Geniuses'.
Circles, triangles and squares can be arranged on an electronic tablet provided, which are then projected onto the floor.

The 'Light Ball Orchestra' is where beachball-sized globes of multicoloured light and sound are your instruments in this electrifying, one-of-a-kind orchestra.
Touch any ball to change the colour and sound of the balls around it, creating a resonating effect throughout this dazzling environment.
I guess the kids are really enjoying this section.

'Sketch Aquarium' is like 'Sketch Town'.
Just that this time round, we are now coloring sea creatures.

The sea creatures that I selected is the Jellyfish.

How's my drawing?
I think its cute. Haha~
But I'm bad at coloring using crayons.

'Story of the Time When Gods Were Everywhere' is a digital artwork where you can create your own environment by touching hieroglyphic characters and watch them transform into natural elements such as wind, rain, trees and mountains.

The last theme is Space.
Stepping into the 'Crystal Universe' is like entering into a galaxy world.
This stunning artwork is created with teamLab’s Interactive 4-D Vision technology and more than 170,000 LED lights, giving the illusion of stars moving in space.

Overall, this is a interactive place with very good experiences.
I can see not only kids but adults are enjoying too.
Moreover, this is also a great and fun family bonding activities.
