Hello and Welcome,
Alex Zaharov-Reutt's message about this month's Main Meeting is below.
Tuesday 28 July - MAIN Meeting - 5:30pm - 8:30pm
Were now well into the second half of 2015, bringing us ever closer to Windows 10, new iPhones and iPads, and a huge number of brand new gadgets and technologies that will be unveiled in the lead up to Christmas 2015.
Were just at the start of all that happening, so well certainly have some amazing things to see over the next few months, but who is our special guest in July?
Its Chris Roberts, the VP and MD of Parrot in the JPAC region, with Parrot previously coming to visit the group some years ago when it first launched its revolutionary drone technologies.
Several generations of new drones and devices have been launched since then, with drones controlled by users on their smartphones and tablets becoming extremely popular - and gaining exciting new features and capabilities every year.
In 2015, Parrot has launched new drones for sea, land and air, as well as jumping drones, all of which are expected to be keenly sought after, after their impending launches in Australia in September and all the way through to Christmas 2015 and beyond.
Parrot also makes a range of other devices including its high-end Zik 2.0 headphones which offer superlative sound and stylish design.
Well have a nice selection of gizmos, gadgets and lightweight laptop bags available that Ive collected and am happy to give away!
So, see you on Tuesday night, 28 July, for our next Main meeting!
John Mathews
