It's genuine I had a sneak preview when I called at Rowan on Friday. It remains to be seen if anybody buys them.

The irony, for me, is the digitalized info screeen in the foreground, whilst behind it flutters a piece of red wool windicator.

Don't worry... Essentially, this is a computerised sidewheel label. You could achieve the same effect with a mm-scale on the wheel and some difficult tables for click values and compensations.

I had a look at this in early November, and as maestro has indicated, it is a digital readout of what you already have in front of you, placed on a very small screen.
A nice idea, but not for me, well not with my eyesight anyway. Lol.
