Check out the new 30 second spot for this year's Otronicon. It has lots of your old favorites and new things as well. The event seems to grow every year. This year includes many of our existing partners, as well as new ones. Most importantly, the event is focusing more each year on how interactive technology and digital media impact how we live, learn, work and play!
The seventh annual Otronicon is winding down! We’ve assembled some of the best photos from the event, including looks at flight simulators in Military Tech sponsored by Lockheed Martin, the da Vinci Surgical Robot in Medical Sim City sponsored by Florida Hospital for Children and virtual reality courtesy of the Virtusphere.

Otronicon is still going strong - Don't miss the last day, Monday January 16! Now in its seventh year, multiple industry partners join the Science Center to celebrate the role interactive technology plays in the way we live, learn, work and play. Key events for Sunday included:
Florida Hospital hosted Medical Sim City with demonstrations that included the innovative da Vinci surgical robot along with patient simulators, echocardiograms and a virtual autopsy.
Lockheed Martin hosted the military simulation area featuring cutting-edge flight simulators, driving simulators, student-built robots and other great military displays. Other partners presented virtual marksmanship trainers and show how they use simulations to keep our soldiers and pilots safe.
Guests participated in game design workshops overseen by Florida Interactive Entertainment Academy and others. Plus, checked out game development panels that gave a behind-the-scenes glimpse at every aspect of the production of some favorite video game titles.
Guests also took in robot demonstrations from Lockheed Martin’s First Robotics Team, navigated a robot through a maze courtesy of RDECOM or piloted an underwater robot thanks to Sea Perch.
There was plenty to do on day 3 of Otronicon 2012! Attendees were able to witness a presentation from Disney entitled Engineering the Magic, play outdoor laser tag provided by Battlefield Live Orlando and compete in a costume contest for the top prize of a $100 Best Buy gift card!
Remember – if you haven’t gotten a chance to check out Otronicon, Monday is the last day!
