I like realism, so not this year.I'm always eager to hear Pyra news. Thanks for the update!
I tried to collect everything into one remaining "todo" list. I'm not sure if this list is entirely correct; please point out if I missed anything or if something below is wrong:
- wait for samples of the new cases to arrive
- test cases to make sure they are final
- when final, setup production at the new company and order a production batch of cases
- wait for the new CPU board prototypes to arrive
- test CPU boards to ensure they are correct
- when final, order a production batch of CPU boards
- finish testing main board wifi
- try to improve the cooling via simulation
- try to fix the stirring sound via trial and error
- send the mainboards out to the prototype orders for further testing
- give testers time to tinker and wait for any new bug reports (?)
- when final, order a production batch of mainboards
- get the hardware certified
- wait for final cases, mainboards, CPU boards to arrive
- write the manual
- print the manual
- design the packaging
- print the packaging
- assemble everything
- ship em!
Did I miss anything?
Well, there is the polishing of the OS, essential software to be uploaded. That could take a bit. Although most things will be one installation away, for example: "apt-get install vice" to have a Commodore 64 emulator. But then you need to start mapping the keys* to get the joystick working. Wouldn't it be nice to install it through a Pyra Package?There isnt anything spezial to do anymore, i gave it maybe 2 to 4 months (tm) ,
