Robots at Our Dynamic Earth!

Sonny from I-Robot is one of many robots on display at the lastest exhibition at Our Dynamic Earth

An army of robots from some of the most famous film and television programmes of the past century will be storming Our Dynamic Earth this October.

From 12th-27th October, the iconic five-star attraction will be occupied by a 30-strong force of cyborgs, as part of the spectacular Robot1.1 exhibition.

The collection of model androids and automatons gives a snapshot of artificial intelligence on screen over the last 90 years, starting with Fritz Lang’s iconic 1927 film Metropolis, right up to modern day super hero epic, Iron Man.  Sonny from I-Robot is one of many robots on display (pictured above).

This one-off retrospective is a rare opportunity to see the pieces at close quarters, with a chance to examine the craftsmanship and hard work which goes into their creation.

From classic cult programmes, such as Lost In Space and Red Dwarf, to blockbuster films including Terminator 2 and Star Wars, the exhibition is sure to fascinate adults and children alike.

Commenting on autumn’s exciting exhibition, Eilidh Massie, marketing manager of Dynamic Earth said: “After the success of our alien and dinosaur exhibitions earlier in the year, we are extremely excited to be making room for Robot1.1 this half term.  The breadth and depth of the collection means there is something for all the family, from kitsch 1960s robots, to smooth and sleek 21st century technology.   Memories are bound to coming rushing back for kids and adults alike, which I’m sure will make Robot1.1 an incredibly popular addition to the attraction.”

Alongside the seasonal exhibit, Our Dynamic Earth includes a whole host of fascinating features, including Scotland’s only permanent 4D cinema, a real iceberg, a bone-shaking earthquake and a tropical rainforest.

Robot1.1 will run for the duration of the Scottish half term, from 12-27 October 2013, and is free as part of admission to Our Dynamic Earth.
