Celebrating POPular Culture's Impact On TechNOLOGY

ABOUT POPNOLOGY

This interactive, engaging exhibit makes the connection: how technology has been influenced by movies, books, television, art, and futurists.

Which science fiction today will become reality tomorrow? POPnology takes us from fantasy to the reality of driverless cars, robots, drones, 3D printers – and into the future.

POPnology not only chronicles our progression from science fiction to science fact, but also illuminates emerging technologies that are just now showing up on our cultural radar.

How We Play – the future of toys and games. Is virtual the new reality?

How We Connect – the revolution in communication technology

How We Live and Work – Inventions and Ideas that shape our daily lives

How We Move – the future of transportation on earth and beyond
