Otronicon is normally a family friendly event, but Saturday night, January 14, sees the return of the popular adults-only Science Night Live at the Orlando Science Center.
Interact with some of the latest and greatest technology while learning more about STEM careers and the innovations being made right here in Orlando. At Otronicon, play and interact with the best in gaming, simulation and digital technology.

Otronicon will connect visitors with the creative professionals and technology that are turning Central Florida into a hub for innovation. Attendees can fly a real-world military simulator, operate a surgical robot or get a preview of tomorrow’s technology.

This weekend was the return of Otronicon, an annual digital media, gaming, and tech festival at the Orlando Science Center, and as usual, it was a lot of fun.
