MRISAR's R&D Family Team Member: Inventor John Adrian Siegel. John created the MRISAR R&D Team in 1993. He is the leader and is one of four family members who have designed and created the prototypes of every robotic, science, tech art and regular art exhibit that MRISAR sells and rents. John is an awarded, published and exhibited; Inventor, Artist, Engineer and Scientist. He has invented Robotic Systems for NASA.
John is also the primary electrical and mechanical engineer for MRISAR creations.
The members MRISAR's R&D Team are founder John Adrian Siegel, his wife and co-founder Victoria Lee Croasdell, plus their two youngest daughters Autumn Marie Siegel and Aurora Anne Siegel, (who started helping with R&D when they were preschoolers). MRISAR’s goal in creating so many products is to fund their own Philanthropic R&D projects and programs. Although each member is a core Artist/Engineer/Inventor, they have their own interests that they merge with MRISAR, resulting in a diversity of creativity!
This is how MRISAR’s R&D Team work together to invent, design and fabricate prototypes for exhibits and other devices. This process usually proceeds as follows. 1- John, Victoria, Aurora or Autumn, create a rough lined drawing of a new device or exhibit. 2- Autumn creates a 3D Rendering. During this process alterations are made for functionality and all team members point out improvements, regardless of who conceptualized or created the initial drawing. 3- Materials and parts are ordered for the new device or exhibit. 4- Materials and often parts are machined to specifications. 5- The device or exhibit is assembled. 6- The device or exhibit is rigorously tested for maximum longevity and durability. The team’s ability to harmoniously bounce creative and inventive concepts off each other, combined with each person’s multi-skilled abilities is what makes them so successful at quick and concise technological and creative solutions.
John co-founded MRISAR and its R&D Team in 1993. He is the leader and is one of four family members who have designed and created the prototypes of every robotic, science, tech art and regular art exhibit that MRISAR sells and rents. Examples of his original creativity can be seen below. John has also invented Robotic Systems for NASA.

Profit from exhibit sales help to fund MRISAR’s own Philanthropic R&D that 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. Our 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! We were the only company in the world to be awarded an entire chapter regarding our work in the International Federation of Robotics (IFR) “World Robotics; Service Robotics, 2011”.
John was born in an impoverished Detroit, Michigan neighborhood. Although he was raised in a Detroit ghetto, with physical disabilities and was regularly terrorized by his peers, whenever anyone was receptive, he offered assistance to help them overcome their circumstances. He strived to improve himself through faith, knowledge and inventiveness. At age 5 he decided that his life goal was to invent humanitarian and environmental devices to help everyone! He searched alleyways for junk electronics to disassemble in-order to grasp how everything worked. The first school he attended was a dark, boarded up inner city school with roving gangs, asbestos falling from ceiling pipes and constant fighting and noise. In this environment he was unable to learn and was labeled retarded or learning disabled. After years of negative labeling, he was given an IQ test and was then declared a genius. By age 10 John was making relays, galvanometers for taking electrical measurements, robots and interactive electronics. By his teens, John was etching his own circuit boards and building working robotic arms and interactive electronic art sculptures. At 16 he began self-employment restoring antique machines for a museum.
In 1988 John relocated to Byron, Michigan a rural village. Here he met his wife Victoria, a mechanically inclined, artist-poet and single mother of 3. Together they opened their 1st “Free Admission” Robotic, Science & Art center with experimental exhibits. In 1993 John and Victoria officially Co-founded MRISAR and created their own family R&D Team.
Since a very early age he has been concerned with creating the means to help provide decent education and inspiration for children, and with issues like poverty, disability, general health care, the environment and trying to improve the quality of life for others.
