This Newsletter is a double-sized combination of the Spring and Summer issues as, frankly, we didn't have enough material for the Spring issue alone to warrant spending your money on printing and postage. We have arranged two new series of articles, but still desperately need contributions from sources other than Alan, David, Colin ....
In view of the increasing number of diagrams, we are duplicating rather than printing the Newsletter. We hope you like the new format, we certainly intend to include more diagrams and figures where appropriate.
Two benefits for members:
International Persons! Robotics Congress
The second International Personal Robotics Congress (no connection with the above) will be held in San Francisco in September. This will be expensive, not least because of the cost of getting there, but if it is anything like the first, held in Albuquerque last year, well worth the money in spite of what I said in the previous paragraph. The Americans have a great flair for razzamatazz, and though some of their machines hardly deserve the name of robots (the air there is thick with radio control signals), they are still pretty impresslve. The overall cost is unlikely to leave any change from £750, but if anyone is interested in attending, let us know. We will try to arrange a block booking, and reductions in plane tickets, but hurry there is only a short time left.
