Here is something that I usually don't write about. Something that has to do with the real world . Well sort of . This has a science fiction type of feel to it. South Korea is planning to build a Robot Land theme park that is dedicated to .... Well .... Dedicated to everything robots.  Hmmmm Sort of like Westworld or Futureworld movies of the 70's. But I have no doubt that this park will have nothing like those movies but when I heard its building I could not help but muse offer the similarities. So for those that have no idea what these movies I mentioned are I for the fun of it included the trailers to the pre mentioned movies that reminded me of this project.

 The park that is now in the conceptional phase of the project is going to have according to the developers official website  (Robot Land) several facilities one of which will be an amusement park area. Also included are  and Exhibition Halls ,  Experimental Educational Centers , Laboratories and Sports Center etc.. I wonder wit we will be able to see robotic Taekwondo in the sports center. Now that would be something. I have to hand it to the South Koreans they have a futuristic vision that will fire up the imagination and the spirit of their young much like other Asian countries have done and are developing towards that goal. Something that the west has lost a bit for the moment.

The park itself is  projected to open sometime in 2016 . Now to start saving my pennies for a trip there.

The specifications of this park are as follows in the first image. The other images are concept drawings of what the park is suppose to look like after completion. With the exception of the convention booth pic.

SYNOPSIS from taken from Transcendence official website

Dr. Will Caster (Johnny Depp) is the foremost researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence, working to create a sentient machine that combines the collective intelligence of everything ever known with the full range of human emotions. His highly controversial experiments have made him famous, but they have also made him the prime target of anti-technology extremists who will do whatever it takes to stop him.
However, in their attempt to destroy Will, they inadvertently become the catalyst for him to succeed—to be a participant in his own transcendence. For his wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall) and best friend Max Waters (Paul Bettany), both fellow researchers, the question is not if they can…but if they should.
Their worst fears are realized as Will’s thirst for knowledge evolves into a seemingly omnipresent quest for power, to what end is unknown. The only thing that is becoming terrifyingly clear is there may be no way to stop him.
Alcon Entertainment presents “Transcendence,” starring Oscar® nominee Johnny Depp (“Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street,” “Finding Neverland,” the “Pirates of the Caribbean” films), Paul Bettany (“The Da Vinci Code,” “A Beautiful Mind”), Rebecca Hall (“The Town,” “The Prestige”), Kate Mara (“House of Cards,” “Shooter”), Cillian Murphy (“Inception,” “The Dark Knight Rises”), Clifton Collins, Jr. (“Star Trek,” “Pacific Rim”) and Oscar® winner Morgan Freeman (“Million Dollar Baby,” the “Dark Knight” movies).
“Transcendence” marks the feature film directorial debut of Oscar®-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister (“Inception,” the “Dark Knight” movies). Pfister directed the movie from a screenplay by Jack Paglen. Oscar® nominees Andrew A. Kosove and Broderick Johnson (“The Blind Side”) are producing the film with Kate Cohen, Marisa Polvino, Annie Marter, David Valdes, and Aaron Ryder.
Pfister’s behind-the-scenes collaborators include director of photography Jess Hall (“Brideshead Revisited”), production designer Chris Seagers (“X-Men: First Class”), Oscar-nominated editor David Rosenbloom (“The Insider”), costume designer George L. Little (“Zero Dark Thirty”), and Oscar-nominated visual effects supervisor Nathan McGuinness (“Master and Commander”). The music is composed by Mychael Danna, who won an Oscar® for his score for “Life of Pi.”
