We hate 2020!

Just when we thought 2020 couldn't get any worse! We were about to re-open after many months of being closed but then disaster struck when a mains water pipe burst and flooded much of the ground floor of the museum.
Sadly re-opening has now been postponed. Read More >>>

Acorn is working with Sun Microsystems to provide Personal Java, a development language for applications which can use either a domestic TV or a conventional monitor.
Acorn's TVCentric technology will enable platform-independent Java
applications to display high-quality output on standard televisions,
without the need for tweaking by application developers.
Acorn expects TVCentric Java to become the de facto standard for
the convergence of TV and Java technologies.
"We are delighted to work with a leader in the consumer Internet
appliance area," said Jon Kannegaard, Vice President of Software
Products at Sun's JavaSoft Division. "With the adoption of Java on
RISC OS now, and the development of Java on Acorn's TVCentric
technology, we are sure that we will have a major impact in markets
for Internet-enabled products."
All Acorn's operating systems, reference and production designs will
have deeply embedded support for Java. Java applets will run on
consumer devices as freely as they do now on desktop computers.
Any Java applet will be able to use Acorn's anti-aliasing font
technology, anti-twitter screen displays and advanced graphics
rendering without any code changes.
