How does technology influence how we play, connect, live, work, and move? That’s what the Comic-Con Museum’s newest exhibit, “Popnology,” will explore.

The immersive exhibit — opening Wednesday, Oct. 4 — will take over the museum’s main space with interactive displays centered on tech’s connection to pop culture’s biggest movies, toys, TV, art, and books.

It’ll touch on virtual reality, robots, drones, 3D printers, driverless cars, and the future of transportation. Guests can expect to see a full-size replica of the DeLorean from “Back to the Future” and the world’s first 3D printed car.
