ROUGOL logo Welcome to
RISC OS User Group Of London



ROUGOL is a not-for-profit organisation consisting of Acorn/RISC OS computer users in London and the south-east. Our aim is to bring those users together. There is no membership fee and entry to all meetings is free. To find out more, email us.


Meetings are held on the third Monday of every month. Most meetings feature a guest speaker, demonstrating the latest hardware or software, giving tutorials of software both new and old, or simply to kick off discussions on the current hot topic. Entrance is free, so why not come along and say hello?

Next meeting - Monday 15th July 2019 
3D Printed Robots - Leo White

This month we will be forecasting the Rise Of The Robots as Leo White brings along some of his robots and the 3D printer used to produce them.

Leo has been a regular competitor at the Raspberry Pi Foundation's annual Pi Wars robot competition. He will show us how he designs his robots and demonstrate the 3D printer used to produce the parts. It will show how far and fast things have progressed since Leo brought along an early Pi and robot arm (from Maplins, remember them?) to ROUGOL in June 2012.

We will also have the new Raspberry Pi 4 on display and will be discussing its capabilities and the work needed to get RISC OS running on this much upgraded board.
