    As they're all booting up fine, I thought I'd make some nice pictures for you.

    Enjoy :D

    WOOHOO!

    This should have been a news thread! This is huge!
    --- Double Post Merged, Jun 10, 2017, Original Post Date: Jun 10, 2017 ---
    Now that there are Pyras plural in existance, an interesting number for you to track:

    (Development costs) / (number of Pyra's existing) = X

    Those 7 are likely worth their weight in very precious metals.

    When X is less than the average list price for a Pyra, throw a party!

    Damn, great F******g work guys, they really look AWESOME! Looking forward to some proper video's showing what they can do, as now they are just seven rather pretty door stops.

    Now the next 2 months are going to be even harder to endure:p

    This is fantastic news ED. What a way to start the weekend. I love it.

    All together now: "video, video, video,..." :p

    That's fully intentional. So, whoosh.

    Very nice! The display looks crystal-clear.
    Big mystery about the Logo-Plate.

    Tiny nitpick: will the final version have the keyboard back-light also lighting up the right speaker grating, as it does in this picture? I wonder whether it would be a little distracting.

    Nice pictures overall, though!

    This is awesome. Can you make a photo of the Pyra in the fires of the underworld direct sunlight with full screen brightness, so we can see how readable the LCD is in the worst case?

    Awesome!!

    So, I skipped the keyboard wars. Quick question, with the F-keys requiring Fn+Number to use, is CTRL+ALT+F2 possible? I miss being able to switch to console with that combo on my Pandora. It almost doesn't feel like proper Linux if I can't just pop to a console whenever I want no matter what is jacking the full screen.

    I know I can just switch it to an easier combo but I'll never remember it.

    The Pyra definitely looks awesome though!

    I also wonder if ALT+Fn+ESC ( = ALT+PrtScr ) does work as SysRq, so I could kill a frozen Xserver. But I see some complications finishing the key combination with the Fn Key pressed...
