No, they are coloured Pyras. Somebody did some photoshopping of the Pandora as classic machinesare you reffering to this thread?
If I understand it OK, aluminum piece is problematic, so it is possible it will be replaced by plastic film. Decision is not taken yet.The "hole" gets filled in first by a translucent plastic medallion the same size and thickness as the hole. The aluminum piece is essentially a thick sticker that glues/bonds over the boundary, sticking to both the lid and the translucent medallion. The aluminum simply holds the translucent piece in. It does not need to be thick.
Really I don't want to personalize my Pyra with my loved C64 (C128 was my first personal computer, and it was a C64 more than a C128, although I loved BASIC 7.0 and much more the machine language monitor included in C128 mode). For my Pyra is a complete new computer using Linux and I will run on it a lot of Linux and emulators of my beloved C64, and lots of other computers and some consoles (I prefer computers even for gaming).i'm not too much into decorating one computer to look completely like another system.
they all have their own pesonalities. so just a hint in a style direction would be enough for me.
it's more subtile this way and keeps the distinct looks of the systems.
but if one can swap out a complete theme fastly it would be fun nontheless
I know It's not a solution for mass-production but I've been toying with glow-in-the-dark filament.Usually, I only post results - not the many discussions I have with different companies.
That's why I mentioned that here: I finally found a usable solution for an issue that was known since I assembled the prototypes.
And yes, this has all been posted here already, if you followed the news.
It shouldn't be new to you that I didn't have self-adhesive logos yet.
Honestly if the Pyra had internal GPIO that were broken out I would consider trying to implement something like this on my Pyra. The SoC has two Cortex-M4 cores on it right? Might as well put them to use sending notifications to an external display if they're not doing anything...
I tried to get ED to make a whole Pyra case made out of that stuff. If the plastics company could make a snap-in glow in the dark logo... indeed!I know It's not a solution for mass-production but I've been toying with glow-in-the-dark filament.
It works pretty well with LEDs to charge it. it's a fun effect.
I might just DIY customise mine
Shouldn't be too difficult to design a printable clip-on piece once I get my Pyra.
I'm waiting for the pinephone. Which will probably be out before the pyra.The Pyra looks really cool it's going to be great to get it after all those years. I also preordered a Librem 5 but the Pyra has a keyboard and that's really cool. I think that the Librem 5 is better for making pictures and for calling but the Pyra is better for playing Rogue and we all know what's more important.
What a coincidence: I own a LG V20 and I plan to get a Pinephone (and a Phonebook Pro).I'm waiting for the pinephone. Which will probably be out before the pyra.
But it's a cheap <$150 linux phone with hardware cutoff switches. It also has features most new phones don't include (although my lg v20 still has all these and more), removable battery, video out, sd card (bootable)
I'm eager to mess with it!
Pineohobe and Librem 5 with a keyboard with good and some ergonomic design, like Pyra, would be great. The problems of those Linux phones wil ll be they don't have phone mode soft and they can't use Linux Desktop soft in mobility because they don't have keyboard.Yes, the PinePhone seems like a very cool phone too. I think that it's going to be a good time to be a GNU/Linux phone user.
