Now on the last leg of it’s Far East tour, our Mechanics Alive!! exhibition was officially opened by Her Royal Highness Princess Siriwanwaree Nareeratana of Thailand on July 26th at the Thailand Creative and Design Center in Bangkok.
The Princess was enthralled by the exhibits, and also tried out the designing automata kit in the workshop area. The exhibition is proving to be a real crowd pleaser, as last weeks article in ‘The Nation’ reveals. The exhibition closes on 30th September 2007.
