Orlando iX was amazing. I was expecting nothing, and I got treated to an incredible 3 days of awesome tech heads talking shop and showing off their cool stuff. From cool indie games such as Battery Jam, to a storytelling “robot” plush named Trobo. The entire event was just filled with energy.
I had so much fun. And I took this whole week off. I spent most of this week just relaxing, sleeping, and playing a fan translated version of Mother 3. So good!
This weekend is Orlando IX. It’s the first time this event is happening, and they are trying to make it like Orlando’s SXSW. Let’s see if they can pull it off. My coworkers are going to be there representing UCF, while me and some friends are going to be showing off PiPlay, and our custom arcade cabinets.
I recently got one of the Official Raspberry Pi Touchscreen Displays, and it is amazing. I love it. PiPlay looks great on it.
I’ve been working on some prototype cases for the display 🙂
I feel like I have a ton on my plate and nothing to show….yet. Working on PiPlay, our new remote controller system, an arcade game for Orlando IX, and an arcade machine for Maker Faire Orlando. It’s going to be a rough couple of months 🙂
This weekend is Community Effort Orlando, an annual fighting game tournament held near the attractions. I’ve never been to CEO, but I’m really looking forward to it. Street Fighter V is going to be playable, as well as Tekken 7. I’m also going to be able to play a lot of arcade games 😀
