10 a.m.-8 p.m. Mon.-Sat., 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Sun. Aug 17-Oct. 10. Clocks with arms that “hug” you when you walk by. Robots “born” fully formed with spin-like vertebrae seamlessly crawling towards the future. Wooden archer dolls, ingeniously engineered to pluck arrows out of a quiver and shoot, crafted by a ninth-generation Japanese master craftsman. The technology of the future is about to get even more exciting… and emotional. Visitors to JAPAN HOUSE Los Angeles will get a rare glimpse into the future at world-renowned design engineer and University of Tokyo professor Shunji Yamanaka is giving Los Angeles a special treat as he shares these prototypes from his Tokyo lab with the U.S. for the first time. Visitors learn the stories behind the prototypes, while also touching and interacting with select displays. The three core exhibit themes include Additive Manufacturing 3D-printing , Bio-Likeness Robots, and various prosthetic interpretations of the “expanded human body.” Additionally, starting Aug. 25, for a limited engagement, be sure to check out Pepper, an adorable Japanese robot roaming between the 2nd floor gallery and shop.
