    ED has got the moulds modified to add texture for grip, so if reflectiveness were added to the surface, it would at best give you a very soft reflection, or more likely no reflection at all.

    Until you touch it the first time. ;) I would not want it that way. Metal case yes, but anodized/dull/flat or something like that.

    Even professionals failed there, so I guess nobody will ever made a real metal case for Pandora/Pyra. We can dream of course.

    I also have a (not so great) carbon Pyra made, the textures are not perfect but you get the Idea. It should look more like the nice carbon surface of the Dell XPS Notebooks.

    Edit, that's a little bit better:

    Looks like a multi-meter, something you chuck in your toolbox :)
    I guess it would be a good colour in such an environment.

    ED stalking update: ED was viewing this thread earlier today, and I have no idea why.

    Any theories?

    People were talking about using lighter off-white colours in the current main news thread last night. I guess he was seeing how any renders look in those shades.

    Also, why shouldn't he? What is it to you?

    I just like to keep up-to-date on all the latest Pyra happenings.

    Maybe too up-to-date...
