Bring to Orlando: HATCH Experience

1 BookmarksLog in to bookmark

When I found out about this, it made me think of the same kind of thing I would like to see grow out of Florida Creatives - something multi-disciplinary, and not just focused on talking heads, but that inspires people to make things:

HATCH is a biannual four-day experience that energizes creative professionals and thought leaders who are serious about transforming their ideas and talents into bold action, while inspiring others to do the same.

The inaugural Otronicon V.1 event in January 2006 attracted more than 16,000 to experience how the cultural phenomenon of video games is changing everything from art to education to business to military training. Otronicon is uniquely Orlando and spotlights Central Florida's growing digital media industry.

Come join more than 15,000 people, and have fun on more than 100 gaming stations, including Wii, Playstation 3, Game Cube and Xbox, and play some of the newest (and oldest) video games. Experience real life, cutting edge, military training simulators such as those used by the Marines, Lockheed Martin and more. Play alongside your friends or battle it out with tons of video game competitions. Jam with your band mates in the Rock Band Concert Hall, or duke it out with your friends in Central Florida's biggest Super Smash Brothers Festival. Don't miss all the action at this year's Otronicon V.4!

Family
Who said video games are just for kids? Live out your childhood dreams behind the wheel of a racing car or in the cockpit of a fighter jet in one of our state of the art simulators. Or crank up your favorite classic rock hits on a customized Rock Band stage. Oh, and don’t worry, there’s stuff for the kids too!

Gamers
Are you good? Really good? Good enough to face off on some of your favorite games in person? At Otronicon, you can test your skills on more than 100 gaming stations in a variety of competition formats. This year’s highlight – Central Florida’s biggest Super Smash Brothers competition. When you need a break from playing, check out this year’s brand new Machinima Film Festival.

Educators
Otronicon offers interactive classes uniquely designed for middle and high school students to explore the world of gaming technology. Students can work with industry-based tools for 3D modeling, animation and game design. Teachers, we’ve got you covered, too, with special “Teachers Only” workshops to increase your knowledge of technology.
