I'm sure with all you've done for us over the years ED won't mind you borrowing his PIC. I'd get some cream for that zit thoughTaurrent avatar is blatantly stolen from a picture ED posted of the Pyra keyboard, auto-cropped by the board's avatar engine. I thought the pink background nub holes anthropomorphized nicely into eyes. The power button gives it a big zit on the forehead, but such is life. I'll replace it some day when ED tells me to stop using the picture he rendered or something else strikes me as interesting. I should probably ask ED's permission for use - but since I'm using it on his boards only... if my use was upsetting to him I'm pretty sure he'd let me know.
There is a lot of stuff from my youth I wish I still had.My money is still ready, I can't wait. Then from there I might sell my Pandora, not sure how much though, but I sure am going to miss it.
I think the candidate screen has 25ms response time, and the Pandora has 35ms response time I think.Any numbers to give on latency and response time? Tearing/ghosting? Blurriness?
I'm pretty sure the tech specs page listed the LCD as 20ms for response time but that seems to have been taken down now.
What was the Pandoras' screen rated as, for comparison?
I have no real purpose for one, but part of me wants to buy a keymat and have it shipped just so I can hold something tangible related to the project. That is an entirely silly concept of course. So, I'm looking forward to some pictures of keymat(s) if/when you have a chance.Ready for some more old news now ;-)
Well, not much happening right now. We're all waiting for the stuff
We got a quotation for all the PCBs now (took a while), so I guess it's November until they're all ready.
Keymats should be the first things to arrive here
Those are Pre-Production PCBs (we ordered 18 of them) and hopefully, they will be bug free.
How is the screen situation with the rotator chip? Any numbers to give on latency and response time? Tearing/ghosting? Blurriness?
How is the new screen for ghosting? Have you done the Sonic The Hedgehog test?
Nice, could find buyers for sure. Advertise them as ultra rare Collectible Items, with traces made out of pure Gold!Quote said:5 - 8 (depending on the failure rate in production) of those units will be sold for about 1600 - 2000 EUR (we don't have the final production cost price yet).
Yes, it's quite a price, but in case someone is interested in a real prototype (with casing, etc.) with some signed certificate from the team, then it's possible to buy it. And it will help us with funding as well.
Good old Sonic is still the best latency test. But I have no worries at all. Today, even the cheapest LCD's have a compared good response time and even "slow" IPS screens are much faster than older TN panels back then. The Pyra screen is afaik pretty expensive so it should be come with a fast response time. I expect much less than 25ms.Quote said:Yes, we tested that looong ago already (without the rotator chip even), Sonic 2 works fine.
