Freudenstein misses Presto

Unfortunately the wifi signal had dropped out at the Technology Park.

Fortunately the 4G connection on the device then kicked in and Freudenstein was able to show the information panel that comes up for each film on the platform.

But he was clearly pushing his luck when he tried to demonstrate the search functionality by searching for Robert Downey Jr, and the connection dropped out, again.
