We (Sergey, Artem and Me) decided to spend our last weekend at the World Trade Cente, Seoul and the CoEx mall area. Its a beautifully constructed building with a step-step shape. The pic below is and HDR image of the world trade center. Click on it to view a bigger version.
The building on the left that you see in the above pic is the CoEx Mall. This is a gargantuan mall and is the biggest one i have ever been in. Our target was to visit a Korea Technology Exhibition as Korea is undoubtedly one of the leaders in Electronics and IT. At the exhibition I saw many interesting things. Humanoid Robots (which look like humans), Pet robots and other types of machines, paper display (you can fold it like a paper and keep it in your bag after use as a monitor or sth like that), 3-D TV (the display is 3 Dimensional and you DONT need any extra 3d glasses to view it), Car giving out water instead of the usual pollutants, Robotic Arm, Next generation trains etc. etc. There is a beautiful garden outside CoEx mall and after strolling thru it, we decided to go to a nearby Buddhist temple called Bogyeongsa Temple. Due to full moon there was a ceremony that was going on in the temple attended by 100s of buddhists. There were drums, combined prayers, chantings and many other things that I could not quite comprehend. 🙂
All in all a quite hectic but wonderful day 🙂
Have uploaded the pictures in the following location. Check them out..
All the best to those who are having your exams in IIIT 🙂
