2014/07/19 - Transformer Marathon - Saturday, 19 July 2014

ASME Ontario is charged up and wired in anticipation of our first movie marathon… TRANSFORMERS!!! With their new movie, Transformers: Age of Extinction, being released Friday, June 27, what better time could there be to revisit the first three (that’s right, all three) movies in BLU-RAY on the big screen… or at least the biggest screen we could get a hold of!

Join fellow members as we visit the engineering behind these monstrous machines. Could such technology actually exist? How far away are we from creating similar robots of our own? If you’re interested, How Stuff Works wrote an article on this in 2006 so imagine how far we’ve come since then. “Some self-reconfiguring robots, or robots that can change their shapes to perform different tasks, exist today.” http://science.howstuffworks.com/real-transformer1.htm

Until we develop the technology to create transformers of our own, or our planet is visited by Autonomous Robotic Organisms from the planet Cybertron (“ But you can call us "Autobots" for short.”), we can always enjoy the sci-fi creations together, in BLU-RAY.
