The first ever museum of "human" relations

Ubiquitous automatization and replacement by robots has made household problems easy and efficient to solve. For people feeling nostalgic over queues at the doctor's office, or wanting to argue with a police officer over a car accident, the first ever Museum of Human Relations has opened in Moscow. In this interactive museum you can take a walk back into the past, to relive what it was like to live in Russia during the 2010s and 2020s. Professional robot-actors will be rude to you and will slam the door right in front of your face. Afterwards, you’ll be able to complain about it to other visitors, whilst an angry cleaning lady tries to clean up around you.

dylan maust that would be fun and i would totally pay to see that 14 Oct 2019
Marriette Deckard There are already human libraries, this is only an extension of this idea. This is highly likely as humans today do all kinds of LARPing and cos-play to revivify historical eras and experience life in prior times, it's not a stretch to think the same won't happen in this context. 17 Mar 2019
Ishan The idea of such a museum makes sense. In the age of high-tech vehicles, cozy smart-houses, and ever-evolving entertainment options, some people still strive to escape to the wild. So why people in 2050 wouldn't want to get out of their gadget-overloaded houses and dive to the atmosphere of the past in trivial reality? Regarding Tim Suetens' comment, I shall agree that emotional interactions should be diversified to some extent. 23 Feb 2019
Tim Suetens I've never met a doctor who does that before. If you're going to make a 'museum' of human relations, at least make the interactions realistic and not biased by only showing the negative. Also, why can't this be done in VR? Is a physical location needed? Can't we just rebuild the past in VR? 06 Feb 2019
