BP Ultimate Big Boys Toys Is A Must See

Monday 31st October

Techno-Addicts Take Note - BP Ultimate Big Boys Toys Is A Must See!

For those addicted to the latest in technology, this year's BP Ultimate Big Boys Toys will prove a paradise, with gizmos and gadgets from across the globe. Features include the latest Xbox 360, the world's largest LCD TV, a vast array of computers and laptops including the world's lightest notebook - the 1kg Fujitsu Tablet.

Proving a huge hit overseas, the new Sky TV PVR with hard-disk space for 60 hours of recording is about to revolutionise television viewing in New Zealand. Also on display for the first time at New Zealand's premier men's lifestyle event is the latest Skype Technology that allows you to make toll calls through your computer and a DVD recorder with a 160GB hard-drive capable of recording over 200 hours of viewing.

Robots, an SD slot built-in microsystem, a range of personal MP3s and the latest in golf simulators that even give you feedback on your swing will also be on display. For those that grew up in the '80s, there are joystick and button additions for your computer that turn it into a genuine two-player, arcade-style 'spacies' machine!

Says marketing manager Robert Eliott: "This year's BP Ultimate Big Boys Toys is truly special - with a vast range of exhibitors and a fascinating array of leading edge products to view."

He cites the Woosh Wireless Best of Kiwi exhibit as a particular highlight - with the Massey University display featuring a collection of 3D designs of cars, boats and also a 'dirt board'.

And for those with inter-stellar yearnings there's the Zero-G experience or the Russian-based Edge of Space programme to investigate.

The 9th annual BP Ultimate Big Boys Toys returns to the Auckland Showgrounds in Greenlane from November 11th to November 13th - let the games begin.
