Although the ‘Hello, Robot. Design between Human and Machine.’ exhibit is family friendly, the museum isn’t just for kids and it raises important questions about robotics and the world we live in. Questions such as ‘Do you believe in the death and rebirth of things?’, ‘Do you want a robot to take care of you?’ and ‘Are robots advancing evolution?’ are tackled in the exhibition and encourage visitors to think about the advancement of robots in today’s society and what the future will look like in a world of advancing robotics.
