This looks like a cool project.

"The Open Book aims to be a simple device that anyone with a soldering iron can build for themselves. The Open Book should be comprehensible: the reader should be able to look at it and understand, at least in broad strokes, how it works. It should be extensible, so that a reader with different needs can write code and add accessories that make the book work for them."

@therealraccoon This does look cool!

I really wish that e-ink screens would drop in price to buy them in small batches cheaper

@therealraccoon I wish to have this!

I used to have a e-reader that i gave away, I'd kill for this.

@therealraccoon I want to get one of those as soon as I can afford and they are stabilized.

@therealraccoon This looks so freaking cool ! I wish someone technically competent would build a batch of them and sell them.

@therealraccoon Well, Html/CSS-rendering (epub is basically that) with 192KB RAM - good luck.

@therealraccoon Brokeback Mountain! 🙋🏽‍♀️

I like it but dunno if this is easily solderable as it looks surface mount, no?

@Shufei
It looks like they only used soic and tqfp, those are not that hard to solder with a little bit of practice

@marcin @Shufei "not that hard" and "a little bit of practice" are doing a hell of a lot
of legwork here tbh

@therealraccoon
I want one! Also, partial update on a 4.2" e-ink display?! I was only able to find up to 2.9" displays (and >7") with that capability!
