Only two days until Gamescom. I assume ED has reserved a spot in the livestreamed opening ceremony to announce Pyra's production to the world.

I mean, I know my assumption is wrong, but it's nice to dream big.

I still think the first batch of Pyras will ship this year. As for filling all the preorders and becoming available for immediate purchase on the shop... Yeah, um, that could be a while...

Not that I'm any official source though.

Indeed. He should save the announcement for the Pyra-con keynote.
Oh boy, you got me dreaming.

It would actually be cool to meet up at some sort of "Pyra-con" with a lot of the buyers after the Pyra is out there.
See how others have painted their transparent cases. Admire holsters and cases for the Pyra.
Play games together. Maybe even do some sort of game jam.

I guess most of this could be done by simply meet up at some bigger event like gamescom 2020.
Only a game jam would be a little bit more time consuming and need its own rented location.

Im hope for the next few months, and it ditnt look that bad, i think September will be quite interesting there will be lots of progress
I hoped to use my Pyra to play some games on our tripps to the Vosgues (thats a french mountain Region on the other Side of the German Black Forest), this year but now it seems more like next year,

A "Pyra-con" would be cool, but there arend much places on this Planet where every on this Board can easely travel whitin some hours,

We did have some small meeting with the pandora, I rember meeting up in utrecht with a bunch of dutch pandora owners. I wouldnt call it a "con" if there are only ~1500 owners in the whole world, getting more than 10 of them together would be a feat :D

Im sadly never saw a second guy our girl whit a Pandora, (only in the mirror),
seems like the Pandora is way more exclusive than a Buggati Veynron..
(and this car is so exclusive, i cant write its name correctly..) :D
:p&|a: (seems like whe need a new Smily when the Pyra is out..)

Personally I think it depends upon who you are. If your handle is Grench or you're one of the other paid prototypers, 2018 is plausible.
I'm still holding hope for me getting one this year. I'm number 8, last in the prototype purchasers line though. Developers first (of course), the other 7 prototype purchasers, then me. I don't know of any of the other 7 who have admitted to being in the list. If there isn't enough hardware to make it to me on the list though, I'll just have to keep waiting. I.e., I'll still have to get a bit lucky.

You get a Pyra, when you get lucky?

EvilDragon talks on possible CPUs for Pyra on minute 37 of video. It talks first about ROCKCHIP CPU and then about other chip which I don't understand its name.

In this point (minute 37:20) it says its name:

He say: «I'm actually trying to get the [...CPU NAME...] looks exciting I'm not sure if it's possible to get one of those but they are supporting Linux better and better each day as well so that would be one of my favorites CPUs»

Can someone tell me what chip/CPU it is?

Excuse me for my bad English but I am intrigued about what CPU it is.
