The Traveling Robot Zoo

The Traveling Robot Zoo has toured across North America and other countries but now it's in Hong Kong, China. This is the first I've heard of it, but it sounds really cool for young teens. The exhibit features eight giant colorful and interactive robot animals such as the giraffe, bat, chameleon, housefly, grasshopper, rhinoceros, platypus and squid plus 13 interactive exhibits. The giant robots use biomechanics to vividly illustrate how real animals work in the natural world with a perspective on nature's engineering and human technology. I wish I'd heard about it when it was in the US. It would have been great for our kids to check out the robotic exhibits and see the animal's mechanics and how they live.
