Was this the last stop?
It would be nice if we get the full things soonish. Really, I just wanted an excuse to say "World Tour II", and it would be cool to trade stuff through the mail, even if they are only things like stickers and toy snakes.I doubt there are any plans for a second coming of the pyra keyboard - this one took long enough!
Thank you. I've got it second hand twelve years agoI like your belt.
Both of the nubs are equally well usable and I can't find a difference by the touch. There seems to be no dislocation when I press it hard, it holds together very nice. BTW, it's a pity that the nubs are clickable only near the center position.Where plastic is cracked (nub) is it starting together, and if so does it feel sturdy and usable?
When open, the lid can be afffected by moderate torsion forces. The base of the device is very robust. When closed, the device is suitable for self defenseIf we weren't going to get the fiberglass reinforced cases would you feel the prototype plastic was adequate for daily use and carrying?
I think this is already resolved in the latest revision. Key stick is rare on this prototype, so no major problem. Dislodging can be done by pushing a neighbouring key.Do you think the stocking keys will be a major problem, and can they be dislodged by lightly brushing the keys to the side?
The SD card cage is a different component now, so the card is no longer upside down. I don't know about the other connectors. Worst case, the headset problem is easily solvabe with a small extender cable, and this issue is only present with oversized plugs.I thought I read the USB ports or something got moved or were different or something (maybe I am thinking of the SD slots being changed to a different one that orients them correctly), so will we possibly have issues plugging an individual thing in, such as a headset (since it isn't flush with the case edge, and we already have one confirmed to not fit)?
Yes, I think so.Did the volume wheel friction get fixed?
I use manual-incorrect instead of autocorrectWow, i missed a lot of autocorrect fails.
I've tried an L-shaped jack which is normal (smallish) size, I could plug it in all the way. I haven't tought about drilling, it's a good idea but has to be done very carefully because the hole for the jack is at the boundary of two different piece of case parts.The headset thing kinda sucks since mine has a low profile L shape next to the connector that will be perfect for pocket use. I hope it works. I know a drill can probably find the issue if placement on the board isn't different, but once we can all check it out in person we might need to make a list of which ones don't fit without modification to case or connector plastic.
I thought that the keyboard lines are probably routed through the microvias that are all over the keyboard area. These normal size padded vias seem to me as a hacking area, somehow connected to the audio subsystem (stereo audio line in?), or maybe a spare UART or I2C?Those vias are probably taking keyboard lines to the middle layers at a guess. My prototype PCB looks like a 4-layer board by inspection.
OK, so this is probably a bit of necroposting, but I'm still really curious what @EvilDragon thought of the well traveled box and it's additional contents.
Everyone who received that box was so anxious to open it ... all but one.A well, right, still need to unpack it
What do you mean with Gel coating?
