Odd you should mention Psion… Why? It was released as the Acorn Pocket Book here
RISC computing beat the living daylights out of the x86 machines of the day; the husbear’s ARM7500FE-equipped RISCstation in the cupboard would outperform a Pentium 3 despite the Pentium running at hundreds of megahertz and the RISCstation humming along at 40MHz and sipping 5W TDP. Interestingly enough, that’s a similar chip to the one in the GameBoy Advance, so if ever there was a good example of “too many horses for too small a cart” then I think we have a winning contender.
I never had much contact with Amiga machines myself, but I can compare apples to Apples and my Performa 6200 from 1996 doesn’t do too badly as a comparison and that’s clocked at 75MHz. The RISCstation also benefits from booting from ROM so while my Performa is busy polling the hard drive to make sure it doesn’t have to spend time loading the dreaded blinking [?], the RISCstation is already loading Maestro files
As for The Project, we’re still mulling over actual Teletext signals or just spoofing the Pages From Ceefax (anyone who visited the UK in the 90s will remember how we loved just turning off programmes at night and allowing people who had TVs from the 70s and earlier to experience Teletext) before a broadcast. Actual Teletext would be impressive and ensure that only true ARG players would get all the secrets, but at the same time just capturing from a Teletext mode on a Beeb would allow for delicious animations (like this Bad Apple video).
