The Japan House in Los Angeles has commissioned a series of art installations solely focused on artificial intelligence, robotics, and 3D printing for August 2018. 

The exhibits feature clocks with arms that hug you when you walk by, robots with fully formed spin-like vertebrae seamlessly crawling towards the future and wooden archer dolls, engineered to pluck arrows out of a quiver and shoot which was crafted by a ninth-generation Japanese master craftsman.

From Aug. 17 to October 10, 2018 design engineer and professor at the University of Tokyo, Dr. Shunji Yamanaka will give a demonstration of Halluc, a robotic vehicle with eight wheels and legs designed to drive or walk over a wide range of obstacles as part of the exhibit Prototyping In Tokyo: A Visual Story of Design-Led Innovation. This is the first time his work has been on exhibit in the US.

Yamanaka has designed industrial products ranging from wristwatches for Issey Miyake, to railway cars for the East Japan Railway. His research focuses on re-examining the relationships between humans and man-made objects through projects such as prosthetics and life-like robots. His 2010 work, Tagtype Garage Kit, is part of the New York Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection.

Visitors to the exhibit can interact with the display in three areas including 3D-printing that allows engineers to create more complex prototypes with textures. bio-likeness robots and various interpretations of the expanded human body with prosthetics. The exhibit is geared towards the maker movement, robotics and science fiction audience and is designed to leave the visitor to think about what a technology-centric future society could look like.
