Unique event celebrates interactive technology

December 7, 2013 by  

The 9th annual Otronicon event is taking place in Orlando for four days in January. It is being advertised as “a look into tomorrow”.

Visitors will be able to take part in activities such as playing video games, viewing medical simulators in Medical Sim City, testing a robot, and riding in a flight simulator. Other activities include a digital art display called Artronica, military simulator demonstrations, a film festival, and a cosplay costume contest. There are also expected to be several cosplay exhibitors who will be showing off their costumes and accessories.

Numerous workshops are also available on topics such as game design and cyberforensics, with each priced at $5 to attend. In addition, local industry leaders will be holding panel discussion to talk about the future of the industry and job prospects for those interested.

Otronicon is currently looking for volunteers aged 13 and up to help ensure that the event runs smoothly. Volunteers will be able to take part in all activities free of charge.

This event will likely attract interested visitors from all over the Orlando area, including Longwood. It is possible organizers have been investing in services from local printing companies, such as flyer printing, to help spread the word.

Otronicon is taking place at the Orlando Science Center from January 17 to 20, beginning at 10:00 am each day. Tickets are $19 for adults, $17 for seniors and students, and $13 for those aged 3 to 11. To learn more about the event, call 407-514-2000.
