Ticket to robot invasion

By on February 24, 2019

In July, over a hundred humanoid robots occupy the Technical Museum, but already eager robot fans can secure their entrance ticket. The Terminator legend T-800, Maria from Fritz Lang’s Metropolis, a Japanese news reader and social robot Pepper are some of the stars in the Science Museum’s exhibition Robots, which starts its world tour in Stockholm.

The Technical Museum has opened ticket sales for the summer. Anyone who wants can then buy a ticket to be absolutely sure to be the first to mingle with human-like robots. The early departure also receives a 15% discount on the entrance fee.

The exhibition opens at the Technical Museum on July 17, 2019 and is shown until March 2020. It is the first international stop on a world tour that then continues to Asia.

Human-like machines – they are fascinating but at the same time scary. Why do we create machines that resemble humans? With Robots we get to interact with some of the very latest robots – equipped with artificial intelligence and human-like characters. But with the exhibition, Science Museum also backs the band to early automation 500 years back in time.

– Robots is an exhibition that arouses strong emotions. The first thing you encounter is a baby-like robot that makes you feel compassion and sympathy despite its relatively simple mechanics. Robots that stumble after you, the news reader Kodomoroid and the new generation of industrial robots start thinking about a future where we live side by side with humanoid robots, says Lars Paulsson, project manager, The Technical Museum.

Several of the robots in the exhibition are interactive and follow visitors with their eyes, follow their commands, move or act as news reader for the latest robot news. We meet the classic T-800 from Terminator (1991), Maria from Fritz Lang’s Metropolis (1927) and see mechanized creations that can be said to be the human-like robots of the 1500s.

Robots have been a hit after being shown in the UK. The unique collection of robots from both popular culture, early industrial history and future captures both technology enthusiasts and those who are fascinated by the idea of ​​living together with human-like robots.
