Snow Can't Stop the First Day at Automate!

Three inches of snow didn't stop the Automate show from opening on its first day, just slowed some attendee arrivals. By noon our booth was busy. We had several customers come by the booth with lots of questions and some even tried their hand at looking at the brightest line-scan light in world, all 5 million lux of white light of it!. Several signed up for the iPhone giveaway that we will be giving away on Thursday at noon Chicago time. If you have not made it to the show yet, come on down. There is much to see and hundreds of people waiting to help you solve your application challenges!
