Most people would say transforming your car into an interactive driving simulator is a bit extreme. Thankfully for Otronimaniacs, Ron Handy of PHENIX Design Group is not like most people.

A perennial favorite, Ron's company returns for its 10th Otronicon, which means he's been a part of Otronicon since the very beginning! Every year, Ron has driven his own Scion xB into the building and swapped out the front seat for a motion simulator chair. The result is a driving simulation like no other, in which you race among simulated competitors in a six-minute experience.

But that's not all. Ron also showcases his Google Earth exhibit that utilizes a Liquid Galaxy three-screen display and six-axis navigator control, immersing you anywhere in the world. Then there’s the HotSeat Flight Simulator, allowing guests to experience the thrill of flying a high performance aircraft.

Less than three miles away from Orlando Science Center is the Orlando Public Library and its multi-million dollar Dorothy Lumley Melrose Center. For the creator in all of us, this place has it all: video and audio production; photography; fabrication and simulation labs; an interactive media wall; and a conference room.

At Otronicon, the Melrose Center will present many of these offerings in the form of a photo booth, video green screen, audio production bay, simulators and a 3D printer. Simply bring your imagination and they'll show you how to make it come to life!
