Courtesy of Leo White, the five talks from the RISC OS London Show 2018 are now available to watch on YouTube. So, in the order they were listed on the show programme, here they are:
4D – the entity that shares space in the TARDIS with CJE Micro’s – is now offering 7″ and 10.” LCD monitors that feature multiple inputs, including HDMI, making them suitable for use in tight spots with small computers such as the Raspberry Pi. The combination of such a monitor, a Pi, and a small keyboard and mouse could also serve as a “portable desktop” computer.
The 7″ monitor sports HDMI, VGA and 1V composite inputs. It features a native resolution of 1024×600, and is priced at £59 including UK postage. Meanwhile, the 10.1″ one has the same inputs, with the addition of USB, and its resolution is 1280×800. It is priced at £99.00 including UK postage.
CJE Micro’s and 4D will once again be exhibiting at the London Show and expect to have plenty of goodies on display, such as small HDMI monitors, the pi-topRO 2 Pi-based laptop, the 4D/Simon Inns Econet Clock, and a new IDE Podule (details of which to be announced RSN), and much more.
However, the company will be getting to the show by car, which means there will be limited available space to carry stock – so if you have anything specific you wish to buy from them at the show, please give them a call on 01903 523 222 before Friday lunchtime.
In a situation that could have brought the economy stumbling to its knees, for a while there were no Econet Clocks in stock at 4D, having sold the last of the existing i-Cubed stock some time ago. However, the company is pleased to report that there is now a batch of new devices in stock and available to buy.
There will probably be flashing – but don’t worry, it’ll be LEDs rather than Andrew himself.
Although Andrew will be recognised by many people as one of the faces of CJE Micro’s, regularly in attendance as one of the team at RISC OS shows, he also uses RISC OS in his spare time – and his talk in London will centre around one aspect of that: Raspberry Pi interfacing projects, for which he uses BBC BASIC.
If you need more detailed information about a small selection of Wakefield Show exhibitors and their wares than is provided in Mark Stephens’ show report and pictures on the Icon Bar website, but can’t wait for the usual RISCOSitory show report and videos, Ruth Gunstone has stepped in to fill in the gap. Ruth is a member of the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club and, along with Peter Richmond, looks after the show theatre – and has now uploaded her recordings of the various talks to Youtube:
And you thought I was slow putting my videos online!
