esquire e-ink cover


I picked up the Esquire E-ink'ed cover today and took a bunch of high res photos, For the makers out there... It has: a programming header, 5-pin ISP, a Microchip PIC 12f629 which is flash programmable, 8 pin, 6 lithium coin cell CR2016s, 3 volts each. 2 e-ink screens with flex connections - looks like it was made to be reprogrammed and different screens. The top screen 11 segments, the bottom has 3. It was design 06/04/2008. The PCB was made by Forewin, half thickness, 2 layer board (FR4). I think someone out there will likely reflash the PIC and make the segments go on / off at different time and perhaps put other displays on it, there's a little bit of hacking to be had but not that much really.
