A rolling stone gathers no mouldSeptember 3, 2009
Case moulds. They’re slow old things to make. When will the moulds be done? Soon. What are we waiting for? The moulds. Thanks blog people, big help. But maybe not everyone out there knows exactly what these moulds are? If that’s you, pull up a pew. Rather than reinvent the wheel, we’ll just tap into some existing educational resources. This technology students page offers a (deceptively) simple overview of the moulding process. They’re not making a gaming handheld, but they are making a blue hedgehog… it’s the best we could do. (You don’t have to take the test at the end). For a more serious read, there’s the slightly less fun Wikipedia page. Pandora’s moulds are currently in the machining phase.
So what can be done while we wait for the moulds? Write code. Paint the fence. Go a little silly. Troll the royal family on MSN. EvilDragon chooses two, perhaps three of these things.
Well, they’re currently cutting the moulds, during the last days, we decided about the material to use, now we are choosing the perfect color (based on PANTONE samples) and I’m working on the silk screen for the case.
That’s what currently happening.
Oh, and I’m working on the new site, but that does take a lot of work, so be patient a bit more :)
A revamped official site? Gosh yes. Our German counterparts even have a sneaky screenshot or two . . .
