    hands-on gallery

    Hi,everyone. Please do me a favour and tell me what hands-on gallery is. Does it refer to the hands-on area of a gallery or a series of intelligent mobile phones produced by Nokia, or Apple or any other electronic companies? I googled it but I got confused about it. No one tells me its exact definition. Please help me out.
    Thanks.
    Richard

    Re: hands-on gallery

    "hands on" means that the visitor can do more than just look at the item or display. The visitor can touch, play or interact with the display.

    More and more museums and science centers are offering hands-on displays, especially because children want to touch and feel, not just look at thing.

    Thanks, susiedqq. But when I googled it this afternoon, I came across a webpage entitled "The Ultimate Kindle Hands-On Gallery", which begins with an introduction to Amazon's Kindle ebook reader. Here is the link: http://www.eefocus.com/bbs/article_11799.html, and if you like, you may go there for a look. Another model I came across was Nokia N810 Hands-On Gallery and the following is the link:
    Nokia: Nokia N810 Hands-On Gallery and Video.
    Thanks.

    Re: hands-on gallery

    Oh - this is a computer or media term.

    I wrongly assumed this was a museum or art gallery term.

    From the data I gathered, I come to the conclusion that hands-on gallery means either a gallery where we can feel the exhibits,mostly replicas, by hand or a series of intelligent mobile phones or ebook readers. Usually we have only a hands-on area in a gallery where we are allowed to touch those artifacts or even try them to see how they work. This is my preliminary judgement and I am not sure of it. That's why I come here for advice. Yesterday I watched a video clip introducing Nokia N 810 and felt like buying one, but it may be quite expensive to me a Chinese teacher earning not so much.
    It cannot be said that you got it totally wrong. Thanks for your explanation.

    Re: hands-on gallery

    It was the term "gallery" that influenced me. To me, that means things on display.

    So the term, "hands-on gallery," could apply to retail marketing where the manufacturer wants the customer to touch and actually use the items. We have such displays of cameras, etc. in major stores. But I never have heard the word "gallery" to describe it.
