paperd.ink is a 4.2" e-paper development board to showcase calendar, 
weather, to-do lists, notifications, images, and much more. The 
beautiful display allows you to get rid of all distractions and work 
peacefully. Since it's open-source and fully hackable, you can play 
around and customize it for yourself!

Wir basteln mit einem kommerziellen 6-Zoll ePaper-Reader (Kobo Clara, 
Tolino Shine 3 mit 300 ppi 1.448 x 1.072 Pixel) und da ist dann ein 
Touch dabei, Batterie drin, ein 1GHz-i.MX6 mit 512 MB RAM drauf und es 
läuft ein volles Linux (LetuxOS - zunehmend gehen da Teile Upstream)...
Kostet (wenn man ein günstiges Angebot erwischt) kaum mehr das das hier 
beworbene Eval-Board und ist genauso gut hackable (wenn auch nicht mit 
Schaltplan - da muß man etwas raten, aber sonst wäre das auch ein 
langweiliges Projekt).
Und je nachdem was man installiert, läuft da mehr drauf als "calendar, 
weather, to-do lists, notifications, images".
