In the last couple of years I started being more and more obsessed by e‑paper displays. I partly blame my Kindle – by far my favourite and the best electronic device I own to date – and my love for 1‑bit graphics.
My first computer was a Macintosh SE and most of my early years in front of a monitor were spent experimenting with Hypercard: you tend to develop a certain (life-long) taste for black and white graphics.
Before summer I bought an Inky pHAT display and put it to use with a spare Raspberry Pi Zero W I had in a drawer in the office, and my old Playstation Eye camera.
The Playstation Eye works “out of the box” with the Pi: taking pictures with it is pretty straightforward. The next logical step for me was to display them as beautiful dithered black and white images on the small e‑paper display.
