MOUNT PLEASANT -- Foxconn opened its doors to the community on Friday for a chance to see what will be made at the Mount Pleasant manufacturing plant. 

Several people told TODAY'S TMJ4 they knew Foxconn was into display panels, but many said they're blown away by everything else the company is creating.

Thousands made their way to Mount Pleasant on Friday to take a look into the future through the lens of Foxconn.

John Wiederhold is astonished it will be further researched and developed at their new Racine County plant. 

"This is better than the Museum of Science and Industry," he said.  

Foxconn's 8-K resolution cameras and televisions offer an unmatched viewing experience. 

"The TV's, how cool they are it looks like 3D," said Jayda Riley. 

The same technology provides solutions to science.

"I've seen them moving different colored water droplets with electrons," said Ryan Lashley. 

Lashley learned they can even go inside a human body to find cancer cells. 

"I've seen a machine that will do non-invasive brain surgery 20-30 minutes," he said. 

Foxconn's technology can also be found in self-driving cars and aircrafts. The tech giant's lasers detect hazards in any direction. Many of these advancements are exclusive to Foxconn. The company has more than 83,000 patents for their inventions. 

"The possibilities are endless it really is amazing," said Kathi Chvilicek of Racine. 

If you want to learn more about Foxconn for yourself, they're hosting another open house on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The address is 13315 Globe Dr. Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin.
