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.
