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 No idea.
It looks like they only used soic and tqfp, those are not that hard to solder with a little bit of practice
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!
