Back to the Future - Exploring Drones, Robots & Tesla [Sponsored by XPAL Power]

Join Tech in Motion: OC at Eureka Building's high tech outdoor venue to check out high flying drones and futuristic robots May 22nd! We will be showcasing exciting Southern California Robotics and Drone companies, award winning teams and awesome startups at this exciting event. From high flying cinematography drones to life changing robotics, enjoy a night exploring Orange County’s best. Fun with the future of tech will not stop there! Tesla Motors will be providing a Model S and The Delorean Motor Company California are bringing a Delorean as we compare the past and present of automotive technology on the Eureka Building's helipad. 

About Tesla

Tesla Motors was founded in 2003 by a group of intrepid Silicon Valley engineers who set out to prove that electric vehicles could be awesome. Then, The Tesla Roadster hit the streets in early 2008 as a car with no equal. Four years later, over 2,300 Roadsters drive emissions-free in more than 37 countries. Ultimately, Tesla’s batteries and powertrains will help lessen global dependence on petroleum-based transportation and drive down the cost of electric vehicles as they consistently work toward their goal to accelerate the world’s transition to electric mobility with a full range of increasingly affordable electric cars. 

About Delorean Motor Company California

The DeLorean automobile is a sports car that was manufactured by the original DeLorean Motor Company for the American market in 1981 and 1982 in Northern Ireland. It is most commonly known simply as the DeLorean, as it was the only model ever produced by the company. The DMC-12 featured gull-wing doors with a fiberglass "underbody", to which non-structural brushed stainless steel panels were affixed. A DeLorean was featured as a home-made time machine in the Back to the Future trilogy.

About AB Controls

AB Controls started in 1997. They started with writing software, designing and implementing control systems for robotic liquid handling instruments. Their unique software and controls system technology allowed for robotic parallel processing. This meant that multiple robotic actions could be performed at once towards a coordinated result. These instruments were essential in the human genome project where a group of scientists set to sequence the human genome which required tens of thousands of robotic operations. They were also used and are being used in high-throughput screening applications.

Since 2001 they have been developing hardware as well. This meant that they would also design and integrate robotic and automated instruments for various applications. The markets that benefit from these systems include Pharmaceutical manufacturing, biotech companies, medical device manufacturing, and aerospace companies. They have a large library of functions and tools that can be deployed towards a unique and custom application. Their systems eliminate repetitive and time-consuming actions by scientists, technicians and workers. And since their systems communicate with multiple analytical instruments they integrate robotic action with precision measurement. Their customers use their systems day in and day out to build better products for consumers around the world.

About Allied Drones

Allied Drones is a manufacturer of industrial VTOL multirotor UAVs for cinema, law enforcement, and government UAV operators around the world. AD has developed a wide range of unmanned aircraft and innovative payloads designed to be powerful, easy to operate, and capable of carrying a wide range of standard and custom payload systems.

Manufacturing and development facilities are based in Huntington Beach, California, just down the street from the Boeing rocket and space division.

About Aerial Gurus

Aerial Gurus provides aerial (drone) video and photography for real estate, vacation rentals and special events. Aerial Gurus currently serves southern California (Orange, San Diego and Riverside Counties). Aerial video and photography offer a unique (and even magical) perspective that was not available even a few years ago (unless you had a pile of money and a helicopter). Seeing a property or event from the air provides an entirely different viewing experience, which leads to more home sales, increased vacation rental occupancy and more memorable events.

      Banks are like lawyers, you hate them, until you need one yourself.

      Thanks guys! Not all banks are the same. When it comes to business banking, it really comes down to industry experience and doing what's best for the client.

    I'm completely bummed that I had to miss the event due to a last minute "fire drill" at work.

    However, does anyone know where a great start-up tech conference will be hosted in the next few months?

    Also, if you are looking for wireless solutions for yourself and/or business feel free to contact me.

    All the best,
