Robot Zoo

We visited the Robot Zoo exhibit at the Kanyon mall in Istanbul last week. Our kids really enjoyed it.

Featuring large interactive robotics, the exhibit explained how the creatures worked. You could make the chameleon change color, move its head and body and stuck out its tongue.

Other creatures included a giraffe, rhino, bat, platypus, fly and squid.
