Wonderful Welcome Party

We had our First Year welcome party today. In the olden days we used to have cheese and wine. We don't do that any more. Nowadays we have Occulus Rift powered racing, 10 player Xbox mayhem, Wii U, Digital Scalectrix, Xbox One and Rocksmith Guitars. Plus we will also embed you in carbonite, just like Han Solo at the end of Star Wars, courtesy of our Kinect 2 sensor and Ultimaker printers.

There was quite a queue of folks waiting to be "Carbonised", we'll be printing for a while after the event.

We had two seats set up for racing, with force feedback steering wheel, and Occulus Rift for the view. Great fun.

We had so many people that we had to get out extra tables when the quiz started. Great fun.
