When you were a kid, did you dream of having marvelous tools and supernatural powers like the characters in comics had? If so, your dream might be about to come true. Welcome to “Experience Manga Through Science,” a new exhibition at the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation (Miraikan) in Odaiba, Tokyo.
In the exhibition, the wonderful gadgets and supernatural powers used by the heroes and heroines of Japanese manga are simulated using current technologies. The show is designed to stimulate the imagination, explore Japan’s manga culture, and celebrate the possibilities afforded by technology.
