It might look like something out of Futurama, but the 'Museum of the Future' is not part of some sci-fi concept video - it's set to open as soon as 2017 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The museum has to be one of the most far-out architectural designs of recent years and is to feature a permanent exhibit of future inventions and host innovation research labs among other showcases.
Launching the museum, Dubai's Ruler Sheikh Mohammed announced
"The Museum of the Future is to be an integrated environment empowering creative minds to test, fund and market ideas for futuristic prototypes & services. It will offer advanced courses and specialised workshops, a destination for the best and brightest inventors and entrepreneurs."
