Sprocket is pleased to announce its lastest exciting product…The Launchpad for iPad.
The Launchpad kiosk incorporating the iPad is the newest kiosk style device on the market today, designed to perform bigger than its size and cost less than anything else you could buy.
So why is the Launchpad is so good, well for one, the cool looking product has been developed by the award winning Sprocket design team to appeal to tech savvy customers who appreciate the point of difference this product makes…and at a fraction of the cost of fully featured kiosks.
The uses for the Launchpad are only limited by your imagination but to name a few:
Restaurants; Retail showrooms; Automotive Showrooms; Museums; Hospitals; Survey Companies; Medical Practices; Legal Practices; Exhibitions; Education; Airlines; Universities; Real Estate Agencies; Building Directories and many, many more.

GMax? …well as Gerry told it “Cheryl and I were in Shanghai with a prospective client and his name was Max and we were trying to sell a new kiosk concept to him and it came to us that one way was to name it after him because he was a kinda tech savvy guy and we genuinely liked the design.”
Eventually the company did select the kiosk and the rest is history as our joint venture company Xa corporation has gone on to start the manufacture of up to 10,000 GMaxes in the next 3 years…and that is good for Sprocket!

Shanghai can be counted on one thing and that is producing the unexpected and Gerry Mussett along with James Shen & Martin Zhang headed off one Friday night on a bar finding expedition in Pudong.
Their pilgrimage eventually led them down an alley in the shadows of the skyscrapers into an empty Nepalese restaurant …last place to find a bar you might say and so they thought until the barman responded to their “what beer do you have” query by turning them around to see the best little micro brewery in town.
Gerry reported the brew was absolutely superb and despite heroically failing at draining the vats they nevertheless left their mark and vowed one day to return with reinforcements. A great find indeed.
The last weeks of World Expo here in Shanghai are not going to be a gradual wind down rather a headlong rush to get to see the worlds best on show. This weekend over 1,000,000 visitors PER DAY poured into the huge site and many queued for up to 12 hours to see a single pavilion.
Our on site team reports that there are 10,000,000 tickets purchased that have not been redeemed and that means the last 10 days are not going to slow down.
Sprocket’s RFID gate entry system, under the herculean efforts of John Li and his team, are working overtime and currently is handling a database of over 500,000 individuals including photographic records.
Sprocket is one thing and that is it is not static and, in tandem with the fast paced technology it develops, has moved to take advantage of the new business realities in a fluid global marketplace. Sprocket recently purchased the highly sophisticated kiosk and digital signage management software developed by OnQ and Bill Express for their Australia wide Coles Express and Dial Time rollouts.
The success of the re-purposing and deployment of this software for several high profile Sprocket clients has led us to rebrand the software as Sprocket COGS (see COGS post) and to park the Sprocket Digital brand.
The recent highly successful deployment of Sprocket’s technology at the Shanghai World Expo has been the result of an immense amount of hard work by our partner Mr Li and to this end we have established Sprocket RFID as our vehicle for bringing this technology to the Australian and world markets (see Ssshh post) in addition to the burgeoning Chinese demand for sophisticated security technology.
