Teardown Session 5: E-paper and recycled Kindles with e-Radionica's David Zovko

by Crowd Supply

Crowd Supply’s Helen Leigh chats with David Zovko of e-Radionica and takes a tour of their production space — a hacker’s paradise! Join them as they discuss e-paper, DIY displays, reverse engineering, e-waste, DIY PCB manufacture, and building a company with open source hardware.

You won’t want to miss the walk-through of e-Radionica’s unique production facilities, including a hacked together high capacity production line and robotic, motorized scissors.

David is the engineer behind the Inkplate series of programmable e-paper displays (, made from recycled Kindle displays and all open source technology.
