Oh dear, what are we doing here?

This old blog will stay in place as an archive, and heaven forbid, a safety net should there be some kind of bunny uprising in the new digs.

(, September 2009)

The bunnies have risen. And they broke stuff. The WordPress installation at is having a very bad day, and atomicthumbs is busy re-installing and restoring backups. So here we are in the old digs, just letting you know we’re still alive. Bits and pieces of production news are still trickling out, and there will be some catching up to do once pandorapress is back online. In the meantime, Twitter is what’s for dinner.

Update: Pandorapress is back. Mostly.


Trawled, asked, answered.

You might have noticed the lack of updates this week. Well, good news! There aren’t any now either. The case moulds are reportedly going smoothly, and all we can really do is wait for them to finish. But a quiet blog is a cold, dark hell, so a little forum trawling was in order. Below are some questions, answers and pieces of banter from the last week on GP32X. Consume slowly. You need to conserve your strength.

Pandora/Wiz Softcases

July 29, 2009

Andrewe1 has been hard at work on his embroidery machine making some very nice Pandora and Wiz softcases. He plans to sell some in small quantities, assuming he gets permission from GPH and the Pandora team.

These are just prototypes he whipped up in a day, and he’s looking for input, so post in that thread (source link) if you’ve got any ideas!

A fake PSP and a fake Pandora

Craig uploaded a neat video showing off an unrelated Chinese PSP clone and an early cardboard mockup Pandora (starting at ~1:40)

EDIT: Oh yeah, and there’s also an assembled (real) Pandora in there too 🙂

After 2 long weeks is back with a bunch of fancy new features. It’s lightning fast at the moment, but might not stay that way as more people begin to come back.

All of the forums at have mysteriously disappeared. You can still use the other forums ( until everything is sorted out.


Pandora gets major tech press coverage

January 30, 2009

Shortly after the second prototype video was posted, it looks like the community have taken it upon themselves to spread the news far and wide – the video currently enjoys front-page slots on several technology blogs and websites, and is very close to reaching the front page of Digg. So, here’s a round-up, as well as an interesting mistake that one of them made:

Engadget Coverage

OSNews Coverage – Why do they insist it’s the design team that’s posted the video and suggested the release date?

Currently, the team estimates the release date to be somewhere around April 7th, 2009.

Digg Article

Ars Technica Article (the author of that article thought that my estimated release date was what the developer team themselves had said)

Though the current build is still missing its internal components, the team ensures those awaiting the device that the project is coming together and has posted an “unofficial estimated” launch date of April 7.

Gizmodo Article (not really worth the click – it’s a negative, sarcastic article)

Are there any more that people know about?
