Journaling Reads: November 14, 2006. Intel Night at OMSI. One of the many “perks” of being an Intel employee is that we get to attend events for free when Intel sponsers them. This was our family’s first trip to OMSI. Everyone enjoyed the main showcase on STAR WARS. Alex was impressed as we were greeted by a Storm- Trooper at the venue entrance, but fortunatley for us he was very friendly and even let Mark hold his weapon for a picture!
There was a full size cockpit replica of the Millennium Falcon, an orginial Yoda puppet from the classic trilogy and Darth Vader’s actual helmet from Episode III.
The venue wasn’t all about science fiction, there was a large exhibit on robots and how they help people get around and do things they couldn’t normally do without the help of robotics. We even got to test our some of our own solutions to real world challenges.
