Aemulor hypes mystery Guildford project

We like CinoDVD, hint hint

Geminus logoThe Aemulor team are busy hyping up a new project of theirs, one mysteriously named Geminus. Neil Spellings of Aemulor admitted that it's "not really news", but added "we love a bit of idle speculation".

We have no idea what Geminus is, and Neil wants to keep it hush hush until this month's Guildford show. We're a little concerned that it's still Neil and Adrian Lees (the Aemulor programmer) working on Geminus, when um, we thought they were working on Aemulor and, crucially, CinoDVD - which is now late. Now, we'll be the first to praise the development of new software, however we have just one word of advice: prioritisation.

Geminus was an astrologer and also a bit of a mathematician, so Geminus could be some new star mapping software, or perhaps a floating point emulator replacement. Either way, it better be good if it's going to trump CinoDVD development.

If Geminus is Star Mapping software that may compliment the wonderful works of CinoDVD (a bit like Star Tek's first saga at the movies!), then "Beam me up Scotty", sound's great!

Nothing to back me up on this, just idle speculation on my part. However, I am hoping that it is a web browser. A full port of the latest version of the Mozilla browser that fits into the RISC OS style guide, rendering all web pages better than on a PC or Mac, and runs all the multimedia formats out there.

JWCR: It won't be. In any case, the browser isn't resposible for "all the multimedia formats out there". Those are upto plugins.

I believe someone (possibly STD themselves, I don't remember) was talking about GPS for the A9 machines. Which would certainly fit with the name :)

Lol speculation is funny, but we have to be careful that people don't read speculation and then remember it as "someone said maybe" then all of a sudden it's fact after a few more repititions.

However I reckon it's a death ray for all PCs.. it'll cause them all to crash and then everyone to go out and buy RISC OS boxes. Ahem :)

They're going to launch the RISC OS X-Prize. :)

What, the first RISC OS machine to get into Space?

  • Prototype affordable Braille display in development
    A low-cost computer-controlled Braille board has been prototyped by a RISC OS-using university student. Undergraduate Edward Rogers hopes to sell his completed units for as little as 200 quid each to schools and families to allow more blind children to continue learning Braille. And he said he wanted to launch his venture using RISC OS-powered kit before offering a package for other platforms.
