Create Raspberry Pi Single Book Device

Wed Sep 21, 2016 10:04 pm

Is it possible to sell a digital version of a single book on the raspberry pi that has no other functionality than to boot up and load the book on a scrollable touch screen and shut down?

E-Ink displays for hobbyists are either too small , too expensive
or don't have any documentation at all. The cheapest way seems
to use rooted Kindles , and at that point you don't need a Pi at

If you aren't using an E-Ink display , cheap Android tablets
just work and are available now. Furthermore the touchscreens
of those devices tend to work by default , which is not what
can be said of the Pi (except with official touchscreen).

• Don't like the board ? Missing features ? Change to the prosilver theme ! You can find it in your settings.
• Don't like to search the forum BEFORE posting 'cos it's useless ? Try googling : yoursearchtermshere
