PROTOTYPING IN TOKYO: ILLUSTRATING DESIGN-LED INNOVATION
Prototyping in Tokyo: Illustrating design-led innovation presents the innovative designs created by world-renowned design engineer and Professor at the University of Tokyo, Yamanaka Shunji.
The exhibition explores the potential of prototypes to act as a link between cutting-edge technology and society, offering us a glimpse into the structures and textures of the future.
An example of such prototypes is ‘Ready to Crawl’, a series of robots which are ‘born’ fully formed just like a living thing. Their parts are created all at the same time, fully assembled, and with form and movement that closely mirrors living things.
