    Smile Geekiest thing you did or saw at BETT

    Whats the Geekiest thing you saw or did at Bett?

    Mine was seeing how many touches will a smart table recognises by getting lots of people to put their fingertips on the one on the EduGeek stand..

    and the answer was ...


    about 70 individual points were recognised!!!!

    thanks to all the kind EduGeek stand people who helped in this attempt!!!

    I think I remember Ric saying it was something like 160 individual points at a time - I am sure he will clarify or someone else.

    We proved that was wrong as I was part of the how many will it take and it stopped adding up above 70ish.

    Yes I did manage to collect a large number of bags pens etc, to top up our freebies. I think that was the third batch of pens and mugs A2Z let me nick.

    Not to be out done Stone donated a pile as well. Nice to see rivalry work in our favour!

    Devils advocate, but, surely rivalry normally works in our favour regarding suppliers? With each trying to beat the others pricing etc.....

    I was impressed by a lot, not too difficult to me

    One was the whiteboard/smartboard that uses IR. (not geeky but clever)
