Otronicon is the Science Center’s largest annual event, hosting more than 15,000 visitors last year.

Discover the innovation taking place in your own backyard and how it is changing the world!
In the Science Center’s exhibit halls, you will experience the latest advancements in augmented, virtual, and mixed reality. Fly jet missions, perform surgery, drive race cars, ride a roller coaster and more.

This year’s attendees are in for an audiovisual treat with the debut of a rare, immersive full-dome experience incorporating Mi.Mu Gloves that will captivate audiences. Synthestruct (a.k.a. multimedia artist Ginger Leigh) is an interactive and audiovisual designer who uses sensors and creative coding to connect with the world around us and generate imaginary worlds to be explored.
Her work, which focuses on her interest in making the world of sound visible, has often been featured at Orlando Science Center and includes performances around the world. The artist has been working closely with the Science Center to present Viscerality in the Dr. Phillips CineDome, bringing the first full-dome audiovisual performance to Central Florida during Otronicon!
