    Aluminium-Plates with 3M athesive should be fine with water-jet cutting If the Pyra gets fitted with this stickers, I'll make a INOX inlay at work and fitt mine with it :cool: I hope the Pyra don't gets painted. My black 3DS looks absolute ugly after some years where the edges are rubbed of...

    A tale of running over the Pyra with things

    It was in Austria. The manufactuer of this vehicle had an event for company-worker and potentiell customer on an tank-training area (Panzergrube) where you were able to drive all of their products under supervision (I went there with an friend who bought an G3 Metrac.) I have to say that that...

    A tale of running over the Pyra with things

    I think you did understand wrong. You're able to register an Unimog as an tractor. A vehicle registered as an tractor has manny advantages compared to an truck. Which means that youre able to drive an Unimog brandet tractor. This vehicle for example could be registered as a tractor or truck...

    Pyra News: Springs are brilliant!

    Brilliant? Maybe. But not cheaper. If you want these sensors, buy the mobile edition. The sensors are the main reason I bought the mobile edition. The second reason was to use the Pyra as phone. But now my old phone died pacially on me. (The charging port broke and the charger chircuit...

    Some personal stuff - and prototypes building!

    I know a little bit about machining and the price of tools. We are building special purpose vehicles. Most parts get manufactured in our company. Our milling is more on the rough side. That's why I know how hard it is to grind such small tools and how hard it is to use them. But there is a...

    Some personal stuff - and prototypes building!

    Amazing that you're able to grind the material to a diameter this small. It looks like something between ø0,1 to ø0,5mm. And the diamater to lengh ratio is extreme. I wouldn't be able to do that on my tool grinder. The bearings of my mill isn't nearly good enough to have a small enough run out...

    Microsoft XBOX (Project Scarlett)

    Old / dead caps can easy be changed as long you have a solder iron and you aren't blessed with ten thumbs and two left hands. But if the SSD dies and you haven't cloned it before, you are screwed. And the silicon chips normally only die a slow death when they are used over, at or near to...

    Microsoft XBOX (Project Scarlett)

    One thing cought my attention. Microsoft is pulling a Vista USB-Stick virtual ram stunt on the XBone. That means the SSD would not last that long because the console writes like crazy to the SSD and reaches the maximum write cycles. When the SSD is soldered in like in Apple product this is the...

    Some personal stuff - and prototypes building!

    I hope its spring 2020 or earlier, My mobile phone is slowly dying on me. The charging connector has contact problems after 17 years, so I have to take out & charge the battery external once a week. It would be sad when I would have to buy a new phone that short before the Pyra gets released.

    What are you going to do when you first get your Pyra

    SDR is needet when you want to reverse engeneere propritary comunication protocolls or want to find security-flaws. (One of the open source SDR's was made to prove a theoretical security flaw in blue tooth) Or when you want to control all your remote controlled devices with one remote controller...

    Not much text here. Just a video.

    Single slotted screws are a pain. There is the risk to slip of the screw and scratch the case and they take longer to screw in with an electric screwdriver. Philips screws got invented because of this. The only practical screw head types are Philips, Allen or Torx. Single slot screws are the...

    Some personal stuff - and prototypes building!

    They are professionals. You are professional when you doing it for al living. You are an amateur when you're doing it out of fun. Thats no indication of quality. I'm working in the chipping and manufaction area. And its far from "press a button in CAD and the machines produce the part". And...

    Case Improvements and the keymat

    Im not talking about things which are possible in labors. Im talking about laser cutter which the one I write programs for. And the main thing is not if its possible. Its about if its cost effective. Its possible to cut copper an brass with conventional laser cutters. But you need special lens...

    Case Improvements and the keymat

    It's not possible to cut the heat sinks with laser. The main reason is that the material conducts heat. An additional problem is that Copper is to reflective when molten and would damage the laser optics. Its possible to cut aluminium with lasers, but this thickness needs special machines and...

    5G is coming... not in my lifetime

    Isn't the frequency of 5G that high, that it is not penetrating walls, windows or skin? Ive heard a technical podcast (TheAmphour) where one specialist said that the main purpose of 5G is to be used where no glass fiber could be deployed. And after the new EU-rules which getting voted today...
