If you have a project that requires a small display you may be interested in a new addition to the range of components at the Adafruit online store which now stops the Pimoroni Inky pHAT 3 Colour eInk display. The small display supports any 40 pin version of the Raspberry Pi mini PC and offers a 2.13″ EPD display with 212×104 pixels.
The tiny e-paper display comes fully assembled and offers yellow, black, white colours, but if you would prefer Adafruit also stock a similar display that offers white, black and red colours. One thing to remember is that Pimoroni’s software does not support Raspbian Wheezy.
“This Inky pHat in Yellow/Black/White is a petite 212×104 pixel three-color display that looks fantastic and is easy to read even in bright daylight. Broadcast your tweets, the weather, or even graphing data. eInk is great for displays that don’t change often, due to the 3-second display-change-cycle. But the contrast and readability cannot be beat. Best of all, if you shut down the Pi, the display stays on, which is pretty magical the first time you see it.”
