Pandora – What Is Left (misc)

Many of us are waiting for the Pandora… now there doesn’t seem to much work left.

This has been posted on the official Pandora page:


as everybody is waiting, I thought I’d post some status informations. I’ll keep them up-to-date here, so everybody knows what’s happening :)

* Get the final CNCed case (still waiting…)
* Wait until the mould of the keymat is finished
* Design the final keyboard layout
* Create mould of final case (can be done once the case fits)
* CE / FCC testing (can be done once the case is here)
* Mass Production testrun for the final boards
* Stability testing (this will be fun)
* Wait for the last remaining pieces for mass production (LATEST deadline is second week of March)
* Mass Production
* Test the boards

Please keep in mind that it also takes some time to ship.
It won’t help if the case if finished in China, it has to go to Michael and then to the CE / FCC testing company, etc.

Okay, some more info about the mass production:
We want to have a 48 burn-in test for the boards. The failure rate on the first boards depends on how many we’ll test!

In worst case, we have to test ALL boards, which will take a month – don’t worry however, as we can have weekly shipments of the already tested and working boards so the first guys who have ordered don’t have to wait so long.

Let’s cross our fingers and hope there won’t be many problems from now on!

Thanks to for the news.

Mixing up Buttons (Pandora misc)

News from the Pandora front!

Read on:

While the mould for the keymat is currently being produced, we’re concentrating on working more on the keyboard layout. We mostly scrapped out old layout since we had too many important keys missing – so there are no Umlauts or language specific keys on the layout, it’s a plain English keyboard with a compose key to do special characters.
That layout is not final yet, it’s our current WIP.

It might look weird and mixed up at first sight, but there’s one major difference with a standard PC Keyboard: You only use two thumbs for typing on that one, so it’s much more important that the most used characters are convenient to reach (which can be a problem when using the Fn Button).

New Pandora Render Picture (Pandora misc)

EvilDragon released a new render of the upcomming Pandora console. Basically it shows the back of the Pandora with all the ports (which were not finished designing in that render).

From left to right:
Mini USB, EXT Port (where TV Out, etc. will be connected), USB 2.0 and DC in. Of course, in the finished version those ports will have their names or symbols printed below.

Thanks to for the news.

Tecnoballz v0.1 (Pandora Game Port)

Tecnoballz is an exciting Brick Breaker with 50 levels of game and 11 special levels, distributed on the 2 modes of game to give the player a sophisticated system of attack weapons with an enormous power of fire that can be build by gaining bonuses. Numerous decors, musics and sounds complete this great game.

Here comes Tecnoballz v0.92 compiled for the Pandora, dynamically linked, no more work should be needed.

Psms v0.1 (SMS emu for Pandora)

Psms emulates a Sega Master system on the Pandora. The GUI is not funky, but the emu is useable. As most of the peeps out there do not physically own a Pandora yet, it might be of limited interest. Anyway if you own a devboard, this is for you.

Thanks to for the news.
