An exhibition in Osaka is giving visitors a chance to see real-life renderings of inventions and gadgets featured in the popular anime series Doraemon.

Among the displays in the event running through Aug. 31 at the Shin Umeda City district near JR Osaka Station is a single-seat helicopter, said to be one of the smallest in the world, inspired by Doraemon’s head-mounted ”Takecopter” flying kit, albeit not quite as small.

Visitors can feel as if they are wearing an “invisibility cloak” when they try on a garment made of material onto which an image of its surroundings is projected.

Mimicking Doraemon’s special food that allows the person who eats it to speak and understand other languages is a device to translate Japanese spoken into a microphone into English, Chinese or Korean.
