    pyra screen protectors

    I think it is not necessary because clamshell case design protects screen when closed. And when it is open if you use provided plastic pen, there is no problem: it can't scratch screen as it is softer. I have two Nintendo DS and they have screens without marks/scratches because I use them...

    Future of production past preorders

    I think slimmer case would come from slimmer upper (screen) case part. I think there is no room for slimmer bottom part as actually it is a problem for upgrading CPU board (it limits options a lot of), and there is no reason to change battery (using a different battery size would add cost to...

    The Future of Pyra's CPU

    Yes, of course in x86-32 or x86-64 (64 bit x86 ISA) they can be as long as 15 bytes. In original 8086 (16 bit x86), the begin and original x86 ISA, I was taking about, instruction length only go from 1 to 4 bytes, so even in the original x86 16-bit ISA they vary a lot of (typical of a lot of...

    The Future of Pyra's CPU

    You are partially wrong and partially correct :) ARM as being a RISC ISA, have all machine instructions with same length (32 bits in normal mode or 16 bits in secondary Thumb mode). x86, as being very old (in origin) CISC ISA, shows opposite way: instruction length vary from 1 to 4 bytes (i.e...

    The Future of Pyra's CPU

    Correctly, even C64 "encourage" you to touch hardware even in BASIC, because C64 used old BASIC v2.0 without commands to use advanced graphics and sound capabilities, you had to touch hardware with POKE and PEEK commands from BASIC. Commodore 128, being a very upgraded C64, had a much more...

    The Future of Pyra's CPU

    I am thinking about my own personal computer design :) but it won't be a Pyra++ but other type of machine, but thanks for your proposal.

    Blank keymat with custom labels

    Really impressive work :) Amazing. Thank you very much for showing it to us. I am thinking of getting a blank keymat before they got sold out, as I don't know if there will be more blank keymats. On other side I think ideal blank keymat should have black borders like normal keymat, so they...

    The Future of Pyra's CPU

    For that reason in my idea HDMI is on upper case part, while all the other connectors are in lower case, all sharing a USB 3 hub chip :) So you would have USB 3 speed, enough for Pyra even combined in a hub chip. I remember something like DisplayPort was royalty free or something like that...

    The Future of Pyra's CPU

    ¿How many wires takes a USB 3 cable or similar connector? With my idea you had micro HDMI on top part, on its border, but all the other connectors would be on bottom part andwould only need one USB 3 or similar to connect all them to upper part, using a USB hub chip on lower part. Even...

    The Future of Pyra's CPU

    I think you are wrong: actually we have a very big data transit between lower and upper case as video display travels from one to other. On other hand, if we had CPU board (contains RAM, GPU etc) next to display, in same part, we would save lots of data transit from lower to upper case. What...

    It's Electrifying! (Split)

    Really weird. In EU we had some countries with 240v and otgersw with 220v, and years ago it was unified so all them have 230v. So it was simplified, instead of getting more complex.

    The Future of Pyra's CPU

    I think that is not an option as that imply modifying Pyra case. And that only would work when connected to that bottom part with fan. That is the option: a more modern and more integrated (lower nm), more efficient CPU/SOC. But being more efficient doesn't mean it be faster. It may be even...

    The Future of Pyra's CPU

    We must differentiate hype and hot expectations from reality. RISC-V ISA is free/libre, but in fact it is so libre it lets to do completely closed processors, and most of them will be closed. Only a very small fraction of RISC-V processors will be aimed at real freedom for final users. But that...

    The Future of Pyra's CPU

    I would love that RISC-V SOC (second version, with GPU). But I don't know how good it would be availability for Pyra, and worst, it may be a SOC adequate for a SBC, but id doesn't imply it be good for a mobile device: it may be power be too much for a small mobile device like Pyra (at this...

    Tales of an Assembly

    Fast charging is only fast until certain %, after that it goes down progressively. About charging until near real 100% battery or discharge near 0% real capacity, it is an "extreme" action, bad for battery longevity, but allowed because it is best to do some more age to battery than get...

    Tales of an Assembly

    We must wait until Pyra development and sales go "normal", then ED won't be so stressed and he can assess accessories for Pyra which would be other incomes for shop. Of course there must be enough interested users, but that, if occurs, will be when a lot of Pyra have been delivered. At some...

    Tales of an Assembly

    I think you could use an external charger to charge battery outside Pyra, even you could charge two Pyra batteries at night. There are generic external chargers for batteries you could use (I have never used them as my smartphone has an official external charger for spare batteries, but I saw...

    My first impressions of the Pyra

    Thank you very much to both :) for the info. I love that option because you can print (and cut) symbols as you want on a transparent film, even I think you can use a colored transparent film. For example I could prefer red backlight keyboard, and I could do it (losing some light of course).

    My first impressions of the Pyra

    Pyra is a pocket computer (not only a gaming console, in fact it is a pocket computer with gamming controls). I will use it more like pocket computer than like gaming console (although I will game with it too). There are lot of software with elements near border screens or where you need to use...

    My first impressions of the Pyra

    You are totally wrong: I am not suggesting IR or digitizer at actual time (it was long ago since the time to change that passed away). I point to a user who said «absolutely necessary to be used with a stylus» that there are other technologies to use a stylus. In the same message I point the...
