    After all the nice progress news I posted during the last week, I'm sad that I got some news now that are not that well.

    It seems the Pyra is getting too hot even when doing nothing... while just sitting around on my desk, it actually heated the battery that much, that started to burn.

    Fire with a lithium battery is no fun, and the transparent case is now some nice melted blackened blob, the hardware itself is not recognizable anymore.

    As I was sitting beneath the table when it catched fire, we managed to prevent a total burn of the shop, but this still is an issue.

    We have no idea how to fix that, so it could very well be that this will be the last newspost you'll hear about the Pyra forever... :/

    Ah, fair enough, you tried. I guess you don't have the money now to try an A9-based approach

    ;) :D

    I knew it! It's normal for a device like this. Especially at this time of the year.

    It's not suprising. It has got the name "Pyra" afterall.

    At first I was like, How is that even possible?! Clearly something had to have failed long the VRM/PMU circuitry that provided one of the Vcc rails to something (Giving 5-7v to a 1.3v chip, etc.).
    Then I was hold the phone, ED just mentioned burning down the shop-- which I literally Laughed at (Insurance claim can pay for the rest of development!!). April Duels!

    Better have a cup of coffee around when operating the Pyra - it will stay hot ;) (the coffee!)

    Yes, as long as you don't spit it all over your work on reading opening posts like the above.
