USB Emergency Launch Device
What a fantastic freebie - never seen anything like that before - how do they do it? My team here are mystified and have spent some time today trying to suss it out. .... just one thing, anyone else spotted the typo on them?

Aaarhh! We were hoping no-one would notice the typo. To be fair we didn't notice either. The boss at The USB Company let me know on Saturday morning as it was their fault.
It wouldn't be a real BETT show without some kind of spelling or grammatical error from us though

I must admit, I didn't spot it but have since you mentioned it.

It's awesome and white and a glowy thing in the middle and it connects to Edugeek when you push it and it's all USBey and it was free.
It looks like this, but in white and has edugeek Emergency Launch Device written on it.

It's on the bit about the USB Company. Oh, and heres a picture with one on for the unbelivers!

For those wondering how it works - it emulates a keyboard (you can have as many USB k/b as you like) and simply types the correct sequence every time the button is pressed.

How do I get an Edugeek pen? My edugeek.net manual storage device didnt have one.

So I'm guessing it must try and type either the Windows key, or the Windows Key and 'R' or something similar with a Windows Key in order to load the browser - they don't work here as we have blocked use of the Windows Key (for some strange reason unbeknown to me).

We have to provide some form of incentive for you to come to the next event!

Bah, the pictures have ruined it, I'd been picturing something you plugged into your chair and when someone came in and asked yet another stupid question you pressed something and rocketed away into the sunset

I believe it's Windows + 'R'

It's also amusing, but annoying now that whist working if i accidentally nudge it or lean on it the text rwww.edugeek.net is entered mid sentence whereever i click!!!
I also didn't get a pen, but happy with the mugs at the mo'!
