Inkplate 6 - Versatile, easy-to-use, Wi-Fi-enabled e-paper display
A new step into e-paper open-hardware? (Read Full Story here)
Combining open firmware with recycled hardware, Inkplate launches a crowdfunding campaign for an open source e-paper display.
Zovko goes on to explain that "Inkplate 6 is a display designed to make using e-paper extremely simple. Simplicity is achieved in both hardware and software. Just plug in a USB cable or battery, open the Arduino IDE, and change what’s on the screen with a few lines of code.
My question is: Will this help to deomcratize eink hardware development. Are we getting closer open source e-ink hardware?
