We had a similar thread in the Gemini's subforum, I guess we might open one here too!

New update released yesterday: agreement with the Chinese factory now signed, they have now chosen to keep the P70 as the Cosmo's CPU instead of switching to the new P90, they'll attend CES 2019.

New update #14 is out:

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/cosmo-co...or#/updates/all

(seems like direct linking to single updates on Indiegogo is not working anymore, pity).

PCB now working with the internal display, external display now works too, mechanical mock-up has now been approved.

Yes, and the tooling has started for all metal and plastic mechanical components of the Cosmo.

Hm, I used to joke about the apparent 11-day weeks of Planet Computers... but in 22 weeks, we've gotten 14 "weekly" (as they call them) Cosmo updates, which actually is, on average, one every eleven days... Oh well, it'll come when it's done.

Update 15 is out:

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/cosmo-co...59#/updates/all

They may have mentioned it earlier, but the outside screen has a separate processor, and they claim that it makes it independent of the OS in the main screen...

I'm guessing that'll make it harder to customise, control, &c…?

They also said something about defining what kind of "messages" the two parts can send to one-another, and if that is "known" by the OS, then it should be possible? In terms of customizing the LOOK it should be quite straightforward?? And sending over buttons or menu items should make "toggling" the "right" switches possible in the OS, so it should be possible to do almost anything, unless it is restricted by f.ex. the size of items sent (watching a big video on the outside screen might be impossible, and would be kind of impractical anyway...)?

But anyway, update 16 is out:

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/cosmo-co...59#/updates/all

Don't really remember much about what they said, but of course, you (all of the maybe 200+? people reading this tread) might have different preferences than me, and find all of it very interesting! unsure.gif

Update 17 is out, The first picture alone is worth the price of admission, it looks gorgeous, I just want to stroke it.
Lots of interesting news in the update too.
We're getting pretty close, I'm sooooooo excited.
