Hello everyone,
Today I though it would be great idea to have an Eink display for my ipad. I dont care about color and I want to use it for reading in outdoors. I researched online a little bit and found out about "Pixel Qi display kit" and retrofit it into my old ipad. What do you guys think about feasibility of this project? and what do you recommend? where should I start? I have electrical background however I have never done apple hacking that is why I am a little confused and intimidated.
thanks

I don't really see how this would work - the technologies are so different.

eInk refreshes in a completely different way, and is very slow

the other day, I read about a couple of companies that have done this for iphone, that is why I though it should be possible for ipad too.
