National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation and Asimo

Today we travelled south of the city center to the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation where we spent most of the day out of the heat enjoying a very interesting set of exhibits across 3 floors and an interesting anime planetarium presentation on the origin of planet earth that both Gillian and I slept though but the kids enjoyed heartily.

The highlight of the visit, other than the blessed 30 min nap, was seeing the Honda Asimo robot in action doing demonstrations including dancing and kicking a ball to audience members.  So cool.  We ended the day with a visit to Toyota Megaweb where we checked out all of the automobile innovations that will be making their way to Canada in the next twelve months and Uganda in the next twelve years.  Mattias, Sean, I highly recommend the new LandCruiser!

    Matthew saw the Asimo robot picture and said “..cool, they went to see that, no fair!” then when I said it was quite small he said “so, it can kick a soccer ball!”. Guess that told me!
