There were two almost completely working machines which found there way to a couple of shows, and despite them being built with the very first silicon available, they seemingly had fewer issues than the Iyonix prior to its release, and the A9 during its extended more public guestation.

So despite what Acorn said, it could have been easy to bring it to production. If we'd had that vital generation of machines instead of the huge vacuum left by the departure of Acorn and the scurrilous Omega fiasco, the market would be twice the size it now, with far more of the next generation Iyonix and A9's sold.
