Let’s make it happen.
I agree with all of your points.
To reach that goal, I think some visibility and publicity would have to occur. I recently made a post titled “Building an E-Ink Laptop,” where I’m documenting the steps I’m taking to build an e-ink laptop, which generated a lot of interest. The past few days, I’ve had the good fortune and privilege to talk to many people working on amazing projects related to e-ink, and I have learned a lot and have shared my thoughts and discoveries.
One of the barriers to entry when working with e-ink panels of larger sizes is the price. One idea I had around this was creating the: “eI-2030: The Community Built E-Ink Laptop Project”, where community members pool resources and knowledge to build an e-ink laptop.
The laptop and panels travel to different people, they can hack and play around with it for some time, and they ship it to the following community member so we can test ideas out and reduce the cost of entry to people. The process of building an E-Ink laptop will be documented in a blog, a YouTube channel, and Livestream, allowing more people to access E-ink, learn, iterate, generate interest, increase visibility and benefit everyone.
And to throw my hat in the ring, I’ll loan my disassembled Dasung HD-FT to the “eI-2030: The Community Built E-Ink Laptop Project.”
