I wonder if I could cobble together some low-power, ergonomic, on-the-go hacking setup with an e-ink display, some sort of split keyboard, and one of the many tiny computer boards available today
@conatus latency is not great on this model kindle touch. The newer paperwhites are better.
@pcm @conatus I'm following max ogden's instructions to build the kindleberrypi https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/kindleberry-pi-the-second/
it's a rooted kindle touch sshing into a raspberry pi 4.
The keyboard is @technomancy Atreus, purchased from https://shop.keyboard.io/collections/keyboardio-atreus
@cwebber last time I looked into e-ink, the low-latency displays weren't available to DIY hackers, and the options I could find had just abysmal refresh rates.
but once these become a bit more reasonable I would like to give it a shot.
@cwebber I really want a tiny computer with an e-ink display. I don't get how e-ink screens are still so expensive, they have been around for a while now but they don't seem to get that much cheaper.
@cwebber You had me at "e-ink"
@cwebber I keep thinking about this too. With our powers combined...

@cwebber You saw what Alexandra Erin did, right? https://web.archive.org/web/20191028074449/http://www.alexandraerin.com/2019/05/hack-this-look/
@brainwane !!!!!!!!!!!!! I didn't! I also wasn't aware of the VuFine!!!!
@cwebber I too am very excited for the prospect of something like this and ordered the Atreus and Elecom Deft Pro as the first steps...
