Technologies of the
The 4th Special
Exhibition Gallery, Life Science Hall
March 23 – September 19,
I never think of the future. It comes soon enough --- Saying of Einstein
During the 1960's and 1970s,
we were fascinated with many ideas such as robots or space travel. We wanted to
be on the cutting edge of anything that would make our lives easier. Many of us
thought all that “future” technology was just Hollywood's cool creations. But
now, that future technology has already existed in our lives. And more future
technologies are here in the fourth special exhibition gallery of the National
Museum of Natural Science!
The Earth is always changing. Powerful forces shape our air,
water, land, and even our mind, and will continue. Facing so many global
problems, such as hunger, climate change, pollution, education, health care,
energy sources, and space exploration…etc., have you ever worried about the
future of our Earth? Or have you even wished to escape from the endangered
Earth? Technologies of the Future at the National Museum of
Natural Science from March 23 to September 19 offers visitors a good opportunity
to gain advanced knowledge about science, and a different vision of new
inventions and appliances of future technologies. It showcases various
possibilities and missions of the future use of technology. There are some great
installations set up, many of which blur the line between art and prototype
fantastically well. The purpose of the exhibition is to arouse people’s
consciousness of the changing Earth, and to create discussion about how future
technologies might be used, and explore both the positive and negative effects
that might be the result.
Step into this exhibition. Fun and engaging interactivities let
you explore technologies of the future. Future technologies highlighted in this
exhibition include generating electricity with air, making organs of yours,
shopping at home, learning English through falling letters, examining health
condition by means of a smart toilet, delivering medicines or performing
surgeries through nanotech, performing labor for companies across the world
without leaving our homes, and traveling to the moon – perhaps even establishing
colonies there, and more and more...
“Technologies of the Future, organized by the
Museum in cooperation with the National Central University, is supervised by the
National Science Council and the Ministry of Education,” said Dr. Sun Wei-hsin,
Director of the National Museum of Natural Science, at the opening reception.
“That is, our government is paying much attention to global problems, and
indeed, Technologies of the Future is one of the most ambitious
exhibitions held in our country. There are so many scientific discoveries and
missions that await us. Our visitors must be excited to explore these topics in
the new exhibition,” Sun continued. “Most of all, we expect to see our children,
especially high school children, are inspired in this exhibition,” added he.
We are advancing at a faster and faster pace. Are we ready?
Come attend Technologies of the Future. Move beyond a
retrospective to create a forward-looking examination of human’s future!
