Park Lab is a program intended to offer a peek into the future discovered within everyday life by Sony.
It is an experimental space designed to encourage people to see things in daily life from slightly different perspectives.

The fifth installment for Park Lab EXPT.05 will be based on the theme, “Can people adapt to irrational laws of physics?” It will be an experiment to expand on people’s sensory perceptions through the creation of new experiences that stretch beyond the conventional laws of physics by controlling spinning/stopping, slipping/sticking, hardness/softness and other physical properties at opposite and extreme ends of various scales.

*In this program, Sony Group Corporation's R&D Center exhibits a hands-on demonstration of the research and development stage.
