Stuck for ideas of things to do with your kids? Team Lab brings futuristic quality time with its collection of playing corners that use the most cutting-edge technology from Japan
Regarded as one of Japan’s best creative technology companies, Team Lab has been jetting over across the globe to conduct the coolest interactive art expo ever. Jakarta was treated to this fun experience when they recently set up “Team Lab Future Park”, a futuristic indoor playground that both you and your little ones will love! From an arena of oh-so-colourful inflatable balls to a giant digital fish tank, here we tease you with a few glimpses of what you’ll get to experience at this pop-up exhibition.
Once you enter the room, dozens of large inflatable balls grab your attention with their glowing light. If that doesn’t quite amaze you, wait until you head into the arena and start playing – these balls change colours every time they hit the ground! Around the room, you’ll encounter a widescreen digital installation called Story of The Time When Gods Were Everywhere. This innovative and interactive video has floating sigils that you can tap to turn into cool projections like a giant tree, a mountain plus its stunning scenery, gorgeous peacock showing off its dazzling feathers, and many other beautiful objects that make up the magnificent universe we live in. That was incredible!
On the right, was our second favourite corner – a digital hopscotch ground that creates a beautiful visualisation and fun ka-ching sound in our every stomp. Brings back the glorious childhood memories! Still need tad bit more teaser about the space? There’s also a not-so-secret room where tables are set up for you to have fun while colouring a drawing of a sea animal that you can pick. The awesome part is when you hand them over for the staff to scan and ta-da! Your masterpiece is up and alive swimming its way in a huge digital fish tank. Adorable!
This pop-up digital playground opens every day from 10 AM to 10 PM until 8 October 2017. Ticket price ranges from IDR 100,000 to IDR 150,000.
