12 weeks for some rubber keymats? I mean, long lead times for electronics, ok. But for some rubber matts? You really are unlucky with the choice of companies I guess. I hoped for something more like 12 days. IT's JUST RUBBER! (and some plastic caps, I know)As the keymats have a leadtime of 12 weeks, I'm trying to get everything else done within these 12 weeks as well!
Is the old Polycarbonate-Idea still valid? Pyra deserves something nice and durable. And don't make it look cheap, or green or animated...Both CEOs from Uniqueplast will be there - and I'll go there as well, so we can look together for different plastic materials and hopefully find the perfect one for the Pyra.
And I think most people with transparent case will use it to paint interior so have a case with personalized color instead of normal produced colors. That is the good point of transparent cases: you can paint interior and have color you like, really any color or mixed colors, patterns/etc, what you want or you can do with painting and imagination.I think it just looks so bright because of the transparent case.
If there is no light bleeding, the light will only emit from the signs of the keys so it will be much less disturbing for the eyes.
But we will have to wait and see (no pun intended).
My friend, your Xbox is always connected to mains electricity plug, while Pyra will be a lot of time on battery.3,5 Watts sounds pretty good, and compare to the Standbye Current of the XBOX OneX dos its sound much much better, as this needs 30 - 40 Watt in "Fast Boot" Mode,
And 9 Hour Batterielifetime at the Start of the Firmwaredevelopment sound also great, my GPD Win got much less Batterie Time..
The Rest of the News also sound pretty good..
I tend to think the standby rate is more representative of real world use, because most of the time you spend away from a charger will be not running any apps. That 350 odd mA is quite impressive when there's still stuff running you probably wouldn't be running all of the time, and as I recall the lowest I've been able to get my Pandora to run at is about 250mA with the CPU turned on.On other side, running real soft (emulators, linux soft, etc) will determinate energy consumption in a more dramatic way than standby
Of course, I hope a good battery autonomy with that big battery, and even better when we can change the CPU board with a much more modern an efficient SOC.
The good point on Pyra is a Linux SO where you have more control than on a Android smartphone, a BIG battery and finally a REMOVABLE battery, so if one battery isn't enough (we don't know if it doesn't) you can have a second battery to exchange with internal empty one.@Mese96But anyway, I think the bigger concern when the CPU cores are maxed out is heat production and throttling, so I'll be interested to see those thermal camera images and stats in the next news post hopefully. It's worth knowing how long you can push it before the battery will conk out of you, but with such a big battery I'm predicting the overall runtime will be much more down to its standby current.
Rubber mats with multiple layers of paint, plastic key caps hand-glued on top and some special coating so that the glue holds without having visible bubbles.12 weeks for some rubber keymats?

Geez, you forgot to add gold dust, a cocktail cherry and the tears of an rainbow unicorn.Rubber mats with multiple layers of paint, plastic key caps hand-glued on top and some special coating so that the glue holds without having visible bubbles.
You really don't like it simple, right?It's not just a simple rubber mat. Probably one of the most complex ones you can find out there
Yeah, it seems almost an miracle that big electronic companies dont went bancrupt one after another. They must have the ballsiest businessmen that make the tightest contracts in the universe to get their stuff quick, jelaous.BTW: That long leadtime is normal these times, sadly.
There are capacitors which have a lead time of over 30 weeks out there.
You could pretend to be chinese, maybe?Additionally, chinese companies support chinese companies - so they give them priority in production and delivery.
What a surprise... ^^" When they can make fake clones of complex products that fast, you indeed need at least a good production facility. Imagine what they can do when beginning to make original and legal products now. We're screwed.We gave them the production facitlities - and now they're far better than us...
