Otronicon helped bridge that gap by having interactive exhibits that show the interesting things behind video games, robotics and science.

 

This year, 50+ exhibits were on display, including a plethora of retro and indie gaming stations with classics like Space Invaders and new indie games like Damsel in Distress by local Outhouse Games. So, yeah, both my son and I were having a blast at Otronicon.
