Who We Are
MRISAR is a Family Owned & Operated Business.
It was created in 1993 to achieve philanthropic goals as the main
MRISAR's 4 Member Research & Development Team consists of MRISAR's
Founders John Siegel & Victoria
Lee Croasdell-Siegel and their two youngest daughters Autumn & Aurora Siegel,
(who started helping with R & D when they were preschoolers). They are
each Inventors and Artists. Together they have Designed, Fabricated &
Marketed the Earth’s Largest Selection of "Internationally Renowned &
Awarded" Public Use, World-Class Robotic Exhibits & Devices; and “Hands
On” Innovative, Scientific, Technological & Interactive Art Exhibits. They
have also created STEM Educational Kits & Materials for K thru 12/College
& University level curriculums.
MRISAR's 4 Member Research & Development Team make simplistic versions of their serious Technologies and
incorporate them into world-class exhibits that they sell globally, in
order to help fund their continuing R & D in Beneficial & Responsible
Humanitarian projects. So far they have had to fund all of their own R &
Their Humanitarian Research & Development has been presented before and/or
published and awarded by: the United Nations, NASA-Emhart, Stanford,
Cambridge, ICORR, ROMAN, IEEE, Discover Awards, International Federation
of Robotics (IFR), etc. Their 1990's circa, original innovative R & D in
"Facial Feature Controlled Technology" and "Artificial Sense of Touch
Technology" (Adaptive Technology prototypes for the disabled), has helped
pioneer those fields! They were the only R&D Team in the world to be
awarded an entire chapter regarding their work in the International
Federation of Robotics (IFR) “World Robotics; Service Robotics, 2011”.
Their Customers include World-Class Science Centers, Museums,
Universities, NASA, Royalty, Foreign & Domestic Governments, the Film
Industries for inclusion in media productions, etc. They specialize in
Cybernetics, Bionics, Mechatronics, Autonomics, Animatronics, Teleoperated
devices and Interactive Art Sculptures.
One of their primary goals is to create a Prototype Environment for a low
cost, low impact, self-sustaining, alternative energy powered,
Humanitarian & Environmental Research & Development institute with Think
Tank Invention labs. Their purpose is to invent and present responsible,
low cost and easy to implement, beneficial humanitarian and environmental
based technologies and methods that assist with social, ecological,
sustainable and economic solutions. Accomplishing the prototype
environment alone requires research & development of new technologies &
improvement of existing technologies. To help fund their R & D, part of
the Institute will be used as a World-Class “Interactive, Robotics,
Technology, Invention, Art & Nature Center” that will feature their
standard line of World-class exhibits and Showcase their Private
Collection of Innovative, Interactive Exhibits & Devices. It will also
incorporate “Responsible Technologies”! Admission will be free to the
underprivileged. They hope to inspire the upcoming generation to create
careers in responsible technologies that improve the quality of life.
So far MRISAR’s R & D Team has funded all of their own
humanitarian research and MRISAR’s World-Class Philanthropic &
Humanitarian “Interactive; Robotics, Technology, Invention, Art & Nature
to the present they have been providing "free" robotic, science & art
demonstrations and presentations to educational facilities and the general
public, while incurring all expenses for these events. This includes private demonstrations where
they have brought smaller
“Hands On” exhibits to Abuse Shelter Residents (women & children) and
Senior Homes so they
could enjoy them.
