Otronicon 2006 - Exclusive Pictures!
Commentary, Pictures, and Video by Mike Quinlan
The Ultimate Video Game Experience exposition in Orlando Florida dubbed, "Otronicon" is nearly over. If you won't be heading out to see the displays, RetroBlast reader Mike Quinlan has your fix. Mike was kind enough to supply these videos and pictures for the RetroBlast readers to enjoy.
Inside you will find a projection racing simulator, interactive projected displays, and a host of classic arcade games and console systems. Many of the machines featured are part of the Videotopia traveling arcade and video game museum.
It is great to see that display in the images below as the folks at Videotopia really set the stage for a faithful recreation of the 80's arcade experience. Sadly though, I have heard this time around it may have been too faithful as many machines were inoperable for at least some of the show. Ahh..such was life.
Without further ramblings, on to the images!

It was kinda sad, when I went back on
Sunday, many of the arcade machines were broken. I'd say more than half
had signs on them saying they were not working. I have annual passes to
the Science Center so we got to see a preview of the show on Thursday.
Thursday most machines were working. By Sunday many were dead.
