There are a fewof points:I'm really excited for the pyra and will do my best to import one for me, but one thing that got me thinking, don't you worry that the pyra will hit the market with a already obsolette hardware or have I missed something?
Hmm, needs the finished, assembled parts to see if it is looking well. I would have prefered a real seamless solution without a visible frame around the actual logo, but if it is not possible otherwise, why not. If it fits flush and the surface and colours are done right, it should look well enough. But if done wrong, it will look much "cheaper" than the first design for sure.The case part received a small last-minute change:
In order to improve the logo on the backside, it was decided to make the logo surrounding with laser-cut aluminium.
Doing it fully in plastic would make it either look cheap or would extremely difficult to produce reliable and seamless.
Great! Would we be able to set the colour depending on what we doing? For example :Yes RGB LED even.
Yeah it should have a full spectrum of colors, switching itself won't really cause any noticeable drain. an RGB LED is typically comprised of 3 LEDs, so which color and intensity used will consume different amount of power... but It won't be significant maybe at most a difference of a minute or so on a full duration of a battery charge. Ideally turning off the LEDs will gain you the most power savings.If it's RGB, we would be able to have colours like orange, purple, or yellow, right? Does the colour switching would drain the battery life?
Yes, Ed said as much before. Someone may need to write the specific software for that though.Great! Would we be able to set the colour depending on what we doing? For example :
- Red while playing
- Blue while idle
- Green when running other software (something else than games)
- Glowing when downloading
