The Engineering & Technology exhibition is cool, showcasing their EV models, of which I’m personally very interested in (of you have been following my automotive adventures lately, you would have noticed that I loved hybrids and environmentally – friendly vehicles).

This station shows the sketching work done by Proton engineers on the design process. Seriously cool, and I do wonder if it’s for real!

At another booth a Proton rep explained to me about the 3D scanner and the Proton mini prototype. Frankly, he could be speaking in Mars language, cos I couldn’t fathom much. Anyhow, I was totally distracted with the EV vehicles!

More games to entertain both the big and small kids. Yes, the Proton Power of 1 exhibition is not only for the car guys, but also ideal for an interesting and different day out for the family.
