The Orange County Regional History Center is running an exhibit called “Games People Play – The Evolution of Video Games” – they’ve extended the exhibit through September 25th so that we can come back “by popular demand!”. FamiLAB members loaned the History Center few items from our personal 8-bit video game and computer collections – AND – We are happy to announce that the History Center is partnering with FamiLAB for a “hands-on” day, Saturday, September 17th from 11am to 3pm.

(O)rlando Elec(tron)ic (I)nteractive Entertainment (Con)vention

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.

This just looks like a lot of fun. Who's down for some Battledecks? I think this has even been brought up at past FL Creatives events.

What kind of games? Board? Video? Role-Playing? Improv?

That's up to you...

If there's one thing I know, it's that creatives, lateral thinkers, and geeks like to engage in some friendly competition every now-and-again. I've got a bunch of board- and card-games at my disposal. Other folks might have other kinds. The point is to come together and have fun in a non-networking fashion. We are already friends, so let's do something together.

Probably a weekend...? Probably at Stardust...? or perhaps the new CoLab space...? or in ellipsis land...?

If it were not at Stardust, we could order some pizzas and drinks and have a grand old time... somewhere. The Orlando Brewing Co. might be a good place to do this as well, or even our old standard of the Crooked Bayou, or the new Redlight Redlight location (down the street from Stardust in Baldwin Park).

These are all just suggestions, without you, they are hardly even ideas... please leave some comments.
