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

@cwebber @technomancy I ordered keyboardio's Atreus to work with my kindleberrypi. I'll let you know how it works.

@humberto @technomancy Wow! I don't suppose you'd treat us to a video of it in action?

@humberto @cwebber @technomancy This looks like a dream, how is the latency between pressing a key and something happening on screen?

@conatus latency is not great on this model kindle touch. The newer paperwhites are better.

@humberto
pretty awesome, do you have some advanced links and what is that keyboard?
@conatus

@pcm @conatus I'm following max ogden's instructions to build the kindleberrypi raspberrypi.org/blog/kindleber
it's a rooted kindle touch sshing into a raspberry pi 4.

The keyboard is @technomancy Atreus, purchased from shop.keyboard.io/collections/k

@humberto
alright, thank you!
the keyboard seems a bit small for my hands and I think I would take a raspberry zero w just for writing and have maybe a 18650 battery mod
@conatus @technomancy

@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.
