GAG 2003 show newsBy Chris Williams. Published: 3rd Jun 2003, 12:30:24 | Permalink | Printable
European gagsThe German Archimedes Group annual get together has been and gone, lasting two days unlike this year's one-day-only Wakefield show. However, unlike the commercial exhibitor driven Wakefield show, the GAG event reminds us of a demo party; users turn up with their own kit and demonstrate new stuff while a few attending companies present their wares.
We contacted Herbert zur Nedden of GAG-News, GAG'S bi-monthly RISC OS magazine, to find out more about what happened at the Germany based event. While a fuller review will appear in their magazine, just for us, Herbert wrote up a brief run down of the show in English and you can read it here.
The show featured Iyonix, Omega and Alpha machines as well as various new software releases being demonstrated including Artworks 2.
"My personal overall impression was that the visitors enjoyed the event", said Herbert. "The main issue open is the Omega since some users are keen to upgrade to a new system but want to wait until they know what the IYONIX pc and the Omega really offer but I'm confident that that will happen soon."
The next big RISC OS show is this year's Big Ben Club event, which is described as being the European mainland equivalent of the Wakefield show.

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.
