De OISTAT Technology Commission heeft een boek uitgebracht naar aanleiding van de Technical Invention Prize. De prijs beloont de meest creatieve "uitvinding" op theatertechnisch vlak.
"GADGETS! Every true Theatre Technician knows them and relies on the: devices particularly used in theatre, often put together by people working on stage to make their jobs easier. True gadgets are basically simple - yet smart - solutions for our kind of work.
There must be quite a lot of them, some used only in Opera, others in touring shows, some for some reason only in one particular country. Simple solutions to tie a cable to a fly bar, handy tilting devices, accessories for lightning technicians...
Mostly they consist of cheap materials that ze use all the time, but are put together in a way that creates a new apparatus. Quite normal to the people accustomed to work with it. Unheard of by fellow technicians somewhere else! Who Knows: you yourself might even have invented one!
Would it not be interesting to share this knowledge?
So that is why the OISTAT Technology Commission initiated a competition for these simple yet bright ideas, that are in use on stage every day:
the Technical Invention Prize."
