Experiment your way to futuristic fun!
The Robots + Us temporary exhibit is a playful look at how biology and engineering are coming together to close the gap between reality and our robot dreams. It provides a hands-on opportunity to explore how building artificial life can teach us about the real thing:
Included with general admission
This exhibit investigates the making of lifelike machines in robotics, computer science and biomedical engineering. It showcases how those machines can extend our capabilities and change our lives. It also addresses some persistent questions with a surprisingly long history:Could a machine ever be alive? Could we make machines that exceed our own capabilities? Are we, too, a kind of machine?
With its memorable, hands-on components and computer interactives, Robots + Us offers a unique chance to separate the science fiction fantasy image of robots with today’s technical reality and compare our own capabilities with the best we know how to build.
This exhibit made possible in part through the generous support of:
