Odroid Space Megaforce Gameplay Video

Thursday, October 1st, 2009

The Odroid looks quirky, but any avid arcade gamer will understand the reasoning behind its, albeit somewhat borrowed from and remeniscent of the Wanderswan, control scheme. See over the fold for a video of Space Megaforce on this potential, but perhaps quite worthy, thief of Pandora’s attention.

Linux-based PSX Emulator On The Pandora

Thursday, August 6th, 2009

Craig has finally uploaded another video to YouTube. This time it shows off a Pandora PSX emulator in action, with the CPU clocked to 550mhz. The slight stuttering in sound should, with any luck, be ironed out with further optimizations. If all else fails, over-clocking should give us Pandora fanatics full speed PSX emulation in […]

MiFi 2352 Mobile WiFi Hotspot First Impressions

Tuesday, August 4th, 2009

I’m perplexed at the widespread, comparatively anyway, adoption of 3g USB dongles in lieu of far better and more flexible alternatives. So perplexed, in fact, that I decided to try one such alternative, the MiFi 2352 from Novatel Wireless, to see if there’s really a glaring flaw keeping it from the mass market, or if […]

Dingoo Linux Improvements

Friday, July 17th, 2009

Dingoo Linux is still very much in its growing phases, Booboo has a current work in progress kernel that communicates via Ethernet over USB. A massive improvement for interacting with your Dingoo A320, deploying content, using Telnet and, the holy grail, FTP. Being able to get files onto a running Dingoo Linux via FTP over […]

Craig Looks At The Smart T5

Saturday, July 11th, 2009

Craig’s latest YouTube videos show clear signs that he’s finally cracked under the pressure of the Pandora project… okay, I kid. They are actually quite entertaining, quite bold and quite original and this latest video even has a few brief shots of the Pandora toward the end. The reason there’s no Pandora video yet? Craig […]

Dingoo A320 Review

Saturday, June 6th, 2009

Having put my money down to secure a Pandora I’m finally commited to the inevitable but hopefully short wait for the console to be tweaked, finalised, approved and shipped. To pass the time and feed my hunger for some open source console goodness I decided to try and get my hands on a fresh face […]

Pandora Cube

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2009

Craigix has posted a very highly debated and controversial poll on the gp32x forums asking if a Pandora “Cube”, a headless, non portable version of the Pandora much like an HTPC or games console, would be a worthwhile pursuit. The topic is controversial because many people who have “invested” their time and money into the […]

Most Complete Pandora Photos Yet

Monday, June 1st, 2009

CraigIX has posted the most complete pictures of the Pandora yet. Although it’s still clad in a prototype CNC case this particular Pandora is actually in a fetching black, as opposed to the white stress-line-revealing getup of previous assembled units. There are more pictures and, of course, much discussion available in the thread. Edit: Given […]
