Kibo's Virtual Reality Tour

The Museum of Science

Kibo says:

Alas, I didn't have my camera handy when they had posted some comment cards they had received and one said: "Dear Curator, YOU SMELL LIKE CHEESE."




NEVER take cells from anyone's cheek but your own.

Do not clone your neighbors in their sleep.

(from a book chained to a table in the kids' area of the genetics room)




I'M U!

H1GH !!!!11 EYE"M BIFF !!!!!!1 EYE"M U !!!!!!!!!!!11 U R LØØKIN 1N A M1RRER !!!!!!!!@@@211!!!11!!!!!!1

(different book, same table.)




streams of fluid whizzing past the window

Whenever I get to the top floor, I always have to go to the bathroom for some reason.

("Fluidica", one of the museum's oldest and most disinteresting and perpetually-broken exhibits.)




WHAT KEEPS THE BALL FROM FALLING?LOOK AT THE HUGE HONKING STRING IN THIS PHOTO! THIS WOULDN'T FOOL A DOG!

Okay, what keeps the ball from falling down besides the large obvious white string, the curator that put it there, and the admissions that paid for it?

(Personally, I don't believe the string theory!)

(Outside "Fluidica".)




Strange glowing cubical multiplication machine that goes 'CLANG!'

Matt McIrvin (right) is puzzled by this proof that 8 x 8 x 8 is a few bulbs less than 512.

("Mathematica", sponsored by IBM.)




Quote from Dr. Troll

Oh, he's just saying that to confuse you.

I like how this exhibit represents the state of the art of computing now, exactly two decades later than 1954.

("Mathematica".)




Troll Touch logo

And don't let mean old Dr. Troll put the Troll Touch on you!

In the olden days you would have had to touch this screen with a steam-powered finger the size of the Empire State Building.

(In the "Big Dig" propaganda area.)




Zap!  It's a steel-cage deathmatch lightning round!

La Cage aux DIE!!!

I like making my parakeet watch this demonstration.

(Sorry it's so dark, but have you ever tried to take a photograph entirely by lightning light?)

("Theater of Electricity".)
