Went to that a couple of times. Worth going if you've not been before, but it changes little from year to year. I recall a biometric security tool that identified people from their pulse, but over three years the demo (and presumably the detail) never changed.

Plenty of other stuff, and there's bound to be something that tickles ones fancy and leads to a lengthy chat with the scientists involved. The workshop is worth keeping an eye out for, and usually has a demo running (a BFO CNC mill pushing a tiny 2mm bit around when we were there, and bins filled to the brim with exotic metal waste).
