Free LITS tickets up for grabs

Free LITS tickets up for grabs

The London International Technology Show will be held on 21-23 October at the Excel centre in London.

We've got ten pairs of tickets to give away for the London International Technology Show, otherwise known as LITS.

The show is being run by Dennis Publishing's technology publications, including bit-tech, and will feature all manner of spectacles from your favourite manufacturers, such as Intel, Microsoft, Asus and OCZ. Not only that, but retailers such as Scan and YoYo Tech will also be offering modding and PC building classes.

To be in with a chance of winning one of the ten pairs were giving away, simply tell us in the comments thread what you would like to see at LITS and why. It's also worth keeping an eye on our Facebook page and Twitter feed too as we'll also be giving away some of the tickets there over the course of the week.

We’ll be picking a name at random from those who've replied each day this week, so make sure you add your comment to stand a chance of a gaining free entry to the show.

LITS will be held on 21-23 October at the Excel centre in London. The competition is open to all countries, but you'll need to find your own way to London - there are no alternative prizes if you're not able to be in London on these dates.

Head over to the forums to let us know what you would like to see at the London International Technology Show.

I'd love the chance to try out 3D gaming! First Person Shooters if at all possible!

I will be building a budget mini-mod system for this coming year at Uni, for fun. I would like to get hands on with many components and options for this build, especially AMD's new range of Lynx processors.
It's a couple of weeks before my birthday, so it would also be a good chance to treat myself ;)

I would like to see the people behind the articles because I am trying to get a job as a graphic designer for a one of the many magazines I have a genuine interest in.

A chance to see an in depth view of Windows 8 - probably not possible beyond what youtube has available but I would still be interested in seeing it - and the reason: because why not? Windows 7 was a success and I'd like to see if Windows 8 could better it!!

I'd like to check out some of the new monitor tech and am in the market for a new keyboard!

I'd love to see power saving technologies in everyday use. Things like ultra low power (but very capable) desktops based on AMD's Llano and Intels low-power Sandybridge (eg. Core I3 2100t) APU's.

I'd also like to see manufacturers admit that current 3D tech is nonsense. Let's go back to VR or forward to true holographic projection.

I would really like to see bezeless screens. I havn't invested in multiscreen for gaming for this reason. But have just forked out a small fortune for a projector, which is probably better.
Bitemebad91 18th July 2011, 14:03 Quote
Because I'm a intermediate in the pc world and would like to be around some professionals and further my knowledge and try out new technology ! :D also I've wanted to go to a technology festival for a few years now :P and being in London would be amazing :)

Congrats to whomever wins :)

i would love to see some new small but super fast components that can built into a killer gaming pc small enough to transport around regularily.
cubixxx 18th July 2011, 14:33 Quote
I kind of get the appeal of smaller technology, i.e powerful MATX boards but I like my technology big! it could be my failing eyesight or my club hands, either way smaller = more fiddly.

On that note - I'd like to see what they have in terms of the latest tablets, been meaning to buy one but cant make up my mind.

I'd like to see some small power efficient computers, ones that can be used as HTPC's for example. Things along the lines of the eMachine or computers based on the AMD Fusion APU.

Also some software to complement this, the likes of XBMC etc.

I love how this is a viable alternative.
I would like to see ULV and Energy Efficient stuff for HTPCs and the like. Oh and obviously a bit of the Dozer.

Carl Marten 18th July 2011, 18:07 Quote
The computers you use at home (including NAS/servers/media streamers etc).

And if you don't fancy bring in you own kit then some custom builds for the show. For example gaming PCs the size of the xbox360, desktops to make Apple fans drool and if you can get hold of them some mods of the month.

I'd like to see gaming peripherals in use in a CAD/ design environment, all those extra keys on my keyboard would be useful in CAD.
And i want to see a Minority Report style setup in CAD use. I want to stand in the middle of my office flapping like i've walked through a cob web and call it work.
(microsoft did a demo of it a while back, but i want to see it for real)

other than that a day out without the kids would be nice.

I'd love to see some modding being done/demo'd, I'm confident in my ability to build PC's without issues now, but modding is a dark and scary art to me...

I would like to see a new hard disk that are more reliable and cheaper than SSDs. The hard disk technology is simply falling well behind CPU and memory.

I'd like to see the Winners of the Mod of the Month, for the past year, showing off their cases! (or at least some of the them)

Not only would it be a great chance to meet the modders, but also share valuable tips and tricks for modding, and get to question their designs and see the mods up-close and personal ;)

I would love to see some IPS panels being used for gaming. Possibly in a multi monitor setup.

Why?
Because we hear so much about the excellent image quality, but mixed reviews about how suitable they are for gaming. They are a big expenditure for most of us and seeing them in action would give myself an others a fantastic indicator as to how good they really are for gaming.

I'd love to see many cases from manufactores that fits only Micro-ATX matherboards. And not just cases similar to DVD players. For example: if i want to buy the super cool Asus maximus IV gene-z i have to fit that in, at least, a mid towe case that is double the lenght of the motherboard. The only real alternative from "DVD players like" cases is just one only model from silverstone, and if i don't like that ?The Micro-ATX is a beautiful form factor but it becames meaningless if there aren't any cases to support this standard.

i would like to see Micro-ATX cases. These motherboards have nothing less than ATX mobos but you have nothing in return on buying those because in the market there are just "DVD players like" cases. if you want a compact but agressive case, with a good airflow there is just a way, make it your own or buy the 5 old models that still mount 80mm fans and usb2 ports.

(sry for the double post guys, i hadn't read that posts has to be approved)

My girlfriend Zena has been taking me shoe shopping as of late and I'd love to repay the favour in kind. In particular the natural shift in 3D tech toward glasses-free design and just how far they're come with regards to viewing angles and eye strain. The tech is a market changer and not something that can be just read up on, benchmarked or have a third party force a subjective opinion on you; really is something that should be seen in the flesh and at the LITS.

I'd like to see what the Bit-tech people who do the podcast actually look like. I'd also like to see a representative from EA and one from Valve go into a room, sort out their differences and realise that their customers are getting a rough deal by them not working together. Hopefully they'd decide to launch a collaborative download system, perhaps called "tEAm-work", but generally stop bickering.

I know this is pie in the sky, so I'd really like to see a range of monitors - some TN, some IPS panels - to see whether the difference is worth splashing out on.
