May I thank everyone that came on the course.

I must give special thanks to Andy Cousins for his ever willing technical assistance with the Hypervision ReActor rig and software.

The technical ability and the rate of knowledge absorption by this class was astounding. No matter what I threw at them, they soaked it up and wanted more, to the extent that we completed all of the planned technical material in the first day.

But then finds out she's not going to get electrocuted.


Keeping the structure flexible, we learnt what everyone wanted out of the course, some with projects in mind, some just wanting to know what you can do with this technology.
