E-reader With Raspberry Pi Pico


E-reader using Raspberry Pi Pico with E-Ink technology screen with rechargeable battery that fits in the palm of the hand, through which I intend to expand my adventures in the world of reading.


The first step is to plan how the components will be organized.
The second step is to connect all components through wire and solder.
The third step is to plan a simple case in 3d and print out.
The fourth step is to create a simple software that reads the books and sends them to the screen with the possibility of changing pages.
The fifth step is to test everything.

I have follow this project https://github.com/joeycastillo/The-Open-Book to get some ideas and I also did some research on the internet regarding the components, for example the screen I will follow the manufacturer’s documentation.
