Found this Kickstarter for a DRM-free, fully open-source (hardware and software) eReader. Also designed to be waterproof and easily repairable.


AA batteries are a really stupid choice imo, but its a nice idea. the annoying thing is, it'll take extensive modifications to make that stuff run off of lithium, unless they happen to pick a voltage that is a multiple of 3.7 which is unlikely because AA batteries are 1.5v. at least there's cadmium and nickel hydride as rechargeable alternatives to single-use alkaline batteries.

i wish them success in any case. the more open hardware out there the better :)

@xj9 @aadil AA lithium USB rechargable battteries exist now
