We introduced the 3.3-pound "pinky weight" GAGA engineering prototype at this show to an unexpecting audience. The most common reaction was (and remains) an honest "wow", followed by playing and smiling. Immediately evident: Nearly everyone keeps playing (and smiling) -- and not tweaking at the controls -- presumably because there's great tone right away. We're grateful for everyone's encouragement and useful feedback on the important features and characteristics that have been worked into the production GAGA and its siblings.
"Wow" is a common reaction to GAGA.
