Like science? What about Dragon Ball? Then, this exhibit could be for you.

Titled “Dragon Ball Meets Science*,” the exhibit lets visitors ride a Flying Nimbus that measures brain waves, check out optical illusions, and unleash a Kamehameha. It’s science and technology with a Dragon Ball spin.

The science exhibit was first exhibited in Nagoya, Japan last summer, but has since gone on to Taiwan, where it recently ended its run and was covered by Taiwanese sites like Yam News and Moelong.

Website Natalie reports that the exhibit is returning to Japan, and can be seen in Tokyo from April 29 to May 10. After that, it will move to Osaka and be on display between July 18 and August 31.

Below are photos from both Japan and Taiwan:

*The exhibit’s Japanese title is “Doing Science with Dragon Ball!” (ドラゴンボールで科学する! or Doragon Booru de Kagaku Suru!), but the Nagoya Museum called it “Dragon Ball Meets Science” in English.
