I built four, one even with the logo and this one goes to ToastBucket so he can work on the drivers.I had kind of hoped for a group photo of all of the Pyra prototypes assembled at Gamescom. How many got built? How are they working?
It was a bit too crowded in the booth, so building them wasn't that much fun, as the parts were all in one big box and there was a lot of other stuff to take care of, but I've already continued with everything at home.
My wife will be in Florida next week, so I have 24/7 time to work on that.
The production of the first PCBs can start middle of September, btw, everything will be there then.
Then we just need to finish the case, the logo, packaging, etc. and it's time to ship.
I'm planning for the full production sometimes end of October maybe and the preorder-prototypes should go out early September.
What was especially nice is that everyone who held the Pyra in his / her hands (even if they never heard of it) said that it's very comfortable to hold and the keyboard is very nice to use.
That's a good thing
BTW: I tried the SmachZ. It feels pretty nice (reminds me of the Lynx 1 ), but at the moment the analog trackpads don't work that well (at least in my opinion).
Moving the finger slowly often showed no reaction (or the movement hung) and moving it faster makes things inaccurate.
If they are able to fix it, it seems to be a nice Windows handheld.
