Project update 1 of 10
We are excited to let you all know that we have now officially begun crowdfunding for Inkplate 10. After a very successful Inkplate 6 campaign, we received a lot of feedback about improvements we could make and additional features we could add. Most of you asked for a bigger screen, more GPIO, and an on-board RTC, all of which Inkplate 10 provides.
Based on what we learned from Inkplate 6—combined with some additional reverse-engineering—we worked out how to drive this big, beautiful, 9.7 inch e-paper display. But that was just the first step! Our goal is to address the the challenges faced by those in the maker community who work with e-paper displays: poor documentation, difficult-to-use hardware, undocumented code, low-speed screen updates, and lack of support for grayscale and partial-refresh modes. With Inkplate 10, we believe we’ve once again achieved that goal.
We’re now pretty certain that we can design any kind of e-paper display board. And anything we do make will be affordable, high quality, and easy to use. But that’s a conversation for another day. :) First, please help us launch Inkplate 10!
Thanks again to everyone for their support,
