The National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation, simply known as the Miraikan, is a museum created by Japan's Science and Technology Agency. It is situated in a new purpose-built building in the Odaiba District of Tokyo. Some highlights include real-time displays of data from a huge array of seismometers across Japan which shows the country gently vibrating. The occasional earthquakes for which Japan is noted show up as larger movements. Visitors can search the on-line database of recent earthquake activity. The prominent Geo-cosmos globe displays near real-time displays of global weather patterns, ocean temperatures and vegetation cover. A section of rock core taken across the Cretaceous-Paleogene boundary (K-T boundary) records a major meteorite impact event that is believed to have led to the final demise of the dinosaurs. Asimo, the Honda robot is one of the star attractions along with the model maglev train.
