2-14-2016: MRISAR’s Creations Featured in POPnology. Premiering at Arizona Science Center 2016 - POPnology runs from February until May of 2016. The MRISAR Team collaborated with Stage Nine by creating the robotics, interactive components and landscape for 6 Interactive Exhibits (Mars Probe Rover, Super Pentiductor, Cybermatrix-robotic tic tac toe, Challenge the Robot, a 5 finger Robot Arm Exhibit and a 3 Finger Robot Arm Exhibit) that are part of POPnology.

Featured Exhibition - Arizona Science Center.  http://azscience.org/popnology POPnology offers a riveting, memorable exploration of popular culture’s impact on technology – past, present and future – and its direct effect on how we live and work, how we move, how we connect and how we play.

Tickets for the Gala opening were from $500 to $50,000 depending on the seating. http://azscience.org/Donate/galaxy-gala

10-28-2015: "MRISAR's R&D Team creates the ISS Space Station Robotic Training Arm for NASA", article published by the Grant County News, Elgin, North Dakota; by Travis J. Friedt. The robotic arm was designed and fabricated by MRISAR’s R & D Family Team, in New Leipzig, North Dakota. It is a 17 foot long telepresence robotic training arm based on the actual ISS Space Station Robotic Arm. It was made for the US Space and Rocket Center in Alabama. It was incorporated into a life size version of the ISS International Space Station Exhibition as part of visitor training experience. This substantial facility is known for its incredible displays and Space Camp Programs.

9-2015: "Popnology; from Science Fiction to Science Fact": is a new interactive exhibition that seeks to awe, enlighten and educate its visitors with outstanding displays of technological advances inspired by pop culture. Popnology is a 33,000-square-foot exhibit at the 2015 Los Angeles County Fair (LACF), running from September 4 to 27 at the Fairplex in Pomona, California. It’s about how technological advances and pop culture have influenced each other. The MRISAR Team of New Leipzig, ND collaborated with Stage Nine by providing and installing, custom made robotic and electromechanical elements for 3 Robot Arm exhibits, 1 Planetary Probe exhibit and 1 Interactive Technological Art Sculpture “Super Pentiductor”. The installation took place at Popnology. Other exhibitions are: the original DeLorean from “Back to the Future”; The Batmobile from “Batman Forever”; The iconic “Time Machine”; the “Terminator”;  replicas of three different Mars rovers from JPL; and the HAL 9000 computer from “2001: A Space Odyssey.” Links:

4-29-2014 MRISAR Press Release: Our robotics will be included as a permanent part of the RoboWorld Exhibition. Carnegie Science Center has contracted us to create an interactive robotics exhibit for use in their RoboWorld Exhibition. RoboWorld is the world’s largest permanent collection of museum robotic exhibits. It features real robotics (such as our robotic devices) and also movie robotics. Our interactive robotics exhibit will enhance the exhibition by covering a subject they have not yet had the opportunity to address. RoboWorld originally opened in June 2009 and contains many famous movie robots, such as C-3PO and R2 D2 from “Star Wars”, Gort from “The Day the Earth Stood Still”, Maria from “Metropolis”, Dewey from “Silent Running”, Robby from “Forbidden Planet” and B-9 from the television series “Lost in Space”. Many activities with real robotics form the interactive parts of the exhibition. The exhibition attracts visitors from all around the world. It is an honor to have our robotics included as a permanent part of this exhibition. The following are links regarding the exhibition; 1- https://www.flickr.com/photos/carnegiesciencecenter/sets/72157615489816467/ The gentleman in the image with C-3PO of Star Wars is the actor Anthony Daniels, who was inside C-3PO during the filming. 2- Direct link to Carnegie Science Center http://www.carnegiesciencecenter.org/exhibits/roboworld/

 

4-9-2014 MRISAR Press Release: Human Augmentation R & D Project "Wearable Dexterous Robotic Manipulators"; This prototype addresses three issues; 1- the necessity of multitasking with multiple limbs in vocational environments. 2- helping workers in dangerous situations as this device can endure contact with material that human hands cannot. 3- the necessity of having easy to control, dexterous arm (s) in absence of a limb.

 

4-8-2014 Feature: Innovative Technology; MRISAR Institute of Science, Art & Robotics. The thriving business that combines science and humanitarianism. When designing a new product, many companies take into account what materials to use and if it can run on alternative energy. However, in the tech world, it’s rare to find a business that takes into consideration whether their product can be adapted for people with disabilities or have an educational component.

5-1-2003: Papahanaumokuakea, Marine National Monument Mokupāpapa: Discovery Center for Hawaii's Remote Coral Reefs, a new Discovery Center opened on the bay front in Hilo, Hawaii. The center features two of our custom designed robot arms which were incorporated into a mock up of the Pieces Sub simulator and our planetary probe robot. Both were for use in a NASA funded exhibition. The center was constructed to interpret the natural science, culture, and history of the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands and surrounding marine environment. Interactive displays, engaging three-dimensional models, and immersive theater allow the visitor to experience the wonder and majesty of this special ocean region. A 2,500-gallon salt-water aquarium provides a habitat for some of the fishes from the NWHI reefs. Next to the aquarium, in a small alcove is a mock-up of Hawaii Undersea Research Laboratory's Pisces V submersible. Using working robot arms that MRISAR, built in the year 2000, visitors are still experiencing what it might be like as a researcher descending into the dark depths of the ocean. This exhibit is a major hit with the kids, as well as adults. To read more of this article click on the following link; http://papahanaumokuakea.gov/education/center.html

MRISAR was created in 1993 by its founders John Adrian Siegel and Victoria Lee Croasdell Siegel, to help fund and promote their research and development in Humanitarian based Robotics and other scientific elements by incorporating aspects of the technologies they develop into “Public Use Robotic and Science & Art Interactive Devices” that are sold world-wide to Science & Technology Centers, Museums, Universities, NASA, domestic & foreign governments, royalty, and the film industries, etc., to generate income.  They have Designed & Fabricated the Earth’s Largest Selection of World Class Robotics Exhibits. MRISAR resides in a 36,000 sq. ft. complex and often provides “Free Admission Public Events” at their facility and “Free On-location Events” at other public educational institutions. They hope to inspire the upcoming generation to create careers in responsible technologies that improve the quality of life. So far they have funded all of their own R & D. Everything they design is fabricated "In-House", in their own labs and shops!
