Easy e-paper finally comes to Raspberry Pi, with this bonnet that’s designed to make it a breeze to add a 2.13″ 250×122 crisp monochromic eInk display. Chances are you’ve seen one of those new-fangled ‘e-readers’ like the Kindle or Nook. They have gigantic electronic paper ‘static’ displays — that means the image stays on the display even when power is completely disconnected. The image is also high contrast and very daylight readable. It really does look just like printed paper!
The Adafruit 2.13″ Monochrome E-Ink Bonnet for Raspberry Pi snaps onto any modern Raspberry Pi and provides a Python-programmable display with two buttons that can be used to select programs or scroll through options.
We have two fun starter guides to use with this bonnet, an Open Weather display and an event calendar that auto-syncs with a Google Calendar to show you what your next meeting or event is. We also have examples in our E-Ink Python library you can use to craft your own project
Comes completely pre-assembled and tested so you don’t need to do anything but plug it in and install our Python code! Works with any Raspberry Pi computer that has a 2×20 connector, such as the Pi B+, Pi 2, Pi 3, Pi 4, and Pi Zero (and any others that have a 2×20 connector!)
