Experience This High-Tech Digital Park for Only One Weekend

You don't have to shell out anything, because it's free!


(SPOT.ph) Thinking about the future can be a bit overwhelming. There are the possibilities of robots taking over the world, of humanity inhabiting another planet, and other things we only see in science fiction movies. Future City, a pop-up interactive park, gives us a glimpse of what the future holds for only one weekend—September 9 to 10—at the SMX Convention Center in SM Aura. It has a total of seven stations, which all aim to offer an immersive experience to kids and kids-at-heart and teach them a thing or two about preparing for what's to come. Best of all, it's all for free.



The first stop is a digital dome that welcomes you to Future City. It gives a rundown of all things you should know for this one-of-a-kind tour, including a gentle reminder to always have your RFID scanned for every activity.

Kids will have a heyday trying out the next three stations: Sketch Village, Stomp-the-Scrap Floor, and Block-the-Junk Wall. Have your nieces and nephews choose who they want to be in the future: a pilot, a doctor, a firefighter...the possibilities are endless. After designing it for 10 minutes, you can have it scanned to display the caricature on the huge LCD screen. The next two activities are all about learning what could happen to us (especially the young ones) if we keep on indulging on chips and candies, in a fun and less threatening way.







After these, you can help the kiddies find out more about their health through the Family Health Scanner. You can choose from one of the tablets available and input a bit of family history.


To cap off your weekend of being the best titos and titas ever, photo booths are available towards the end of the tour. You just have to press a button, smile, and post the photo on your Facebook page or send to your e-mail.


Future City: An Interactive Digital Park is open to the public on September 9 and 10, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. at SMX Convention Center, 3/F SM Aura, Taguig City. Pre-register through the Future City website.
