Cutting-edge sci-tech products amaze visitors at expo



Throngs of visitors were attracted by the cutting-edge sci-tech products on Saturday at the sixth Popular Science Products Expo (PSPE) in Shanghai, east China.
The four-day exhibition which opened on Friday at the Shanghai Exhibition Center has three major exhibition areas of community studies, science and innovation in Shanghai and teenagers’ science education. Gathering nearly 2,000 exhibits from 300 companies, this year’s event features eye-opening technologies such as 5G and AI.
To mark the 60th anniversary of the premiere of the “Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai” or “Butterfly Lovers” concerto which describes a well-known traditional Chinese romance, a nearly 5,000-square-meter immersive theater is staging the adapted drama of the love story, with autonomous luminous butterflies flying around on 1,200-square-meter electronic screens — a combination of science and technology with art.
Visitors, especially children, were having lots of fun at the expo with hands-on experience of sci-tech products closely related to daily life. A child was “driving” a racing car in the smart driving experience area. A set of real-time alarm device is installed in front of the steering wheel to make driving safer.
“This device is to monitor the road condition. It will warn the driver 1.7 to 2 seconds before a collision,” said an exhibitor. The expo will run until Monday. —CCTV-PLUS
