E-Paper Shield for Arduino
Seeed Studio e-Paper Shield for Arduino: a new approach to reading
The e-Paper Shield for Arduino designed by Seeed Studio is big enough to accommodate 3 different sizes of screen functioning with electronic ink. You can therefore use 1.44” (36.58 mm), 2” (50.8 mm) and 2.7” (68.58 mm) EPDs (electronic paper displays) by quite simply connecting them to the connector included on the side of the e-Paper Shield’s blank surface.
Please note that the e-papers supported by this shield are not included with the product, you’ll need to purchase them separately.
The e-paper technology makes it possible to display data on an electronically modifiable flexible medium.
Text is not only very comfortable to read but you also save money, since the electronic ink display reflects light rather than emitting it. With the e-Paper Shield by Seeed Studio, you can read in more than 170 languages. The shield also has a connector for a microSD card (not included) to store your images.
