Hey Majin. Welcome to the boards, glad you decided to participate activelyHey everyone. I have followed the boards here for over a year ever since I got my 1ghz Open Pandor, but this will be my first post.
I have to say that the Wii created some serious doubt for me regarding the real added value of motion controls, however I can imagine that some games benefit from having at least some accelerometers on board for tilt detection.So I support addition of those. That said, I don't see myself waving a Pyra around.I am very excited for the pyra, and am definitely getting one as soon as it comes out.
I have been curious, by any chance will there be any motion controls? I think that would be a neat idea.
Sound is a vibrationI personally dislike any kind of vibrations in a device.
Sounds like a recipe for broken hinges.Looking forward to using that in homebrew stuff, could be fun. Would it be in the base or in the screen, or both? Maybe it does not make a real difference, but since the screen can move w.r.t. the base (unlike how it is in tablets/smartphones), it could.Motion controls are very probable, indeed.
They will be included when we got enough space left, and as they are pretty small, they will most likely be included.
What do humidity and temperature sensors cost? How do they connect to SoCs? They might cost only a few $ and be easy to connect and use via I2C or something. Position would ideally be on the outside when Pyra is closed and when it's open and it would need a little hole for air to come in. So it seems maybe it could go next to the microphone which has similar requirements.GPS yes (in the 3G models), accelerometers I think I heard being talked about officially, gyro no idea, and compass I've asked for but not heard anything back. Now phones are also getting humidity and temperature sensors and things, but I wouldn't expect it to have any of that.
