One other question about the coated/coloured cases; it seems that it's the coating that carries the colour, and the base plastic is black, at least judging by the places on the inside where they didn't spray the coating. This isn't what we were promised, as I recall, where the base plastic would be the same colour as the outside. It may be okay if the tests you do prove it's almost impossible to file off, but I'd be surprised if that were the situation personally.
Yes, that's a good theory, and I had forgotten that the paid prototype users were getting special colour cases. I've not spotted eight different colours in those boxes though, so these aren't all of those cases, and he's planning to test one or two to destruction.
Amazing to see the group photo of the Seven New Prototypes.
But they are so very ugly in black!
I do hope that if we do end up with a one-colour-fits-all pyra to start off with, that it will not be that colour! The dark grey in the press kit renderings is very much nicer to look at.
