I thought according to the stereotype we rather ought to be good with leather.
Nope, it doesn't show a lot of fingerprints, no worries. It's not that glossyThe chrome paint sounds cool, and I remember it looking quite good if it's the same stuff as in the video you shot. But it will mean that if it ever does come off, it'll be matte underneath. I guess I might also be concerned about fingerprints on that paint unless it's oleophobic.
No, not really. I'll make a list upfront. The basic assembly of the cases is identical, regardless what unit it will be in the end.Getting some choice is good but, I hope this doesn't delay the assembly. Btw., I am still with black.
No, there will be a few helpersAre you planning to assemble all the pyra single handed (don't be so greedy ) ? and how long that assembly will take ? Guessing by the time you took to assemble prototypes, 500 sounds too many to me. I guess you are trying to utilize spare time you are going to get due to delayed arrival of heatsinks and heatpipes.
Actually, that WOULD be possible, yes. The modifications were only last-minute fixes on the prototype boards, the final boards are finished as they are, of course.Could you go a DIY path for some like the odroid go/advance? I have to say that was an oddly satisfying experience. Makes it feel as I have more invested in it than just some gadget.
If I gathered correctly some modifications must be done to the board that should probably remain at your level, but the assembly with good instructions could be sent out and a time saver to you.
It's not that much reflective. It's very dark chrome. As mentioned, it's being used in cars, and the last thing you want is being blinded or distracted when the sun comes through the windowI think chrome is a bad idea. If it's reflective, it will be distracting when using it in the light. And easy to blind yourself with if you're outside.
No, but I'll use the company (in Germany) I always use for printing, and that takes 2 - 5 days normallyAre the designs/content of the manual finished?
Okay, although car paint does chip, even on Audis. I guess we won't be firing grit at our Pyras at 60km/h though so we'll probably be okay from that front.Also, it shouldn't really wear out. It's the same coating that's being used in cars like Audi, etc., and that usually also doesn't wear out that easily.
I can see it now :Are you planning to assemble all the pyra single handed (don't be so greedy ) ?
I like the sound of that. If it does indeed look great on smaller pieces, like on the ribbing of the shoulder buttons, I could see myself swapping out some parts for a black case with chrome accents. Very car-like, as is expected of this coating given its use in the automotive industry, and if durability matches it would make for a nice selling point. That or I wait for a "classic beige" case to be releasedIt's the same coating that's being used in cars like Audi, etc., and that usually also doesn't wear out that easily.
These will need to be coated and I'll bring the company four samples this week. We will try to different variants: Black (matte) and Chrome (which looks amazing in my opinion - that was what I had in mind when I produced the platinum Pandora shells...)
This lead me to @imposserous 's videos, which I somehow missed. Looked great, especially for a prototype, but it got me thinking that there's something we don't know yet (or do we and I also missed it ?) when it comes to the YouTube part : how's 720p60 ?
Section 1.3.3 of the OMAP5 TRM states:Now I don't remember if the OMAP5 has a hardware H.264/MPEG-4 codec
No mention of h265 or HEVC.The IVA-HD subsystem is a set of video encoder/decoder hardware accelerators that supports:
• Real-time video encoding and decoding
• MPEG4/H264 up to 1920 × 1080p @ 60 fps
• MPEG2 decoding up to 1920 × 1080p @ 60 fps
