Doraemon, a blue, catlike character with a “magic pocket” in the eponymously titled manga/animation series, could have been an inspiration for many of Japan’s scientists. For proof, just visit Tokyo’s Miraikan (the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation).

“Doraemon’s Scientific Future” is an ongoing exhibition that explains the ties between the 40-year-old series and modern research. It also lets you experience the jaw-dropping results of some of that research — making you feel like Nobita, Doraemon’s best friend and the recipient of the robotic cat’s magic gadgets.
