Galaxy Orbit

Galaxy Harajuku: Amazing Interactive and Instagrammable Experiences for Free!

Galaxy Orbit is an attraction in the Galaxy Harajuku Building that captures you in a high-speed video, using VR technology along with lights. It is another great Instagrammable moment! The Galaxy phone on the rails moves around you, and you just have to dance around to get the 360-degree video. Beware that there is a slow-motion moment in the video. As you can see here, we failed, but doing something like flicking your hair or smiling at the camera would probably be a good idea.

Galaxy Lightwave

Galaxy Lightwave is a fun one where you enter a dark room, and 13 Galaxy phones capture your moment from different angles. You get to create light beams and make a colourful 3D painting of lights around yourself.

Besides these experiences, there are quite a few more things you can do here. There are Galaxy Within and Galaxy and Olympics Games, where you get to check out the history of Galaxy phones, the different technologies, and the ways that Galaxy has partnered with the Olympic Games throughout the years. It is a great place to learn some history and interesting fun facts. Another fun area is the Kids Area, where you get to control robots and give them commands to move around.
