I have a hardware partner, and what's funny is my code will run on $30 off-the-shelf hardware so I don't even need to proto it.

It's got far better battery life than a cell phone and even right now with the above equipment it's still cheaper than the cheapest smartphone. It also has a better screen for reading because e-paper doesn't cause eye strain so much.

There's a market for it, in that there's a market for $100-$150 e-readers so presumably there's one for $30 e-readers with a bit less functionality.

I won't be doing the sales myself. I've got a guy who has been running a successful company since the 1980s, marketing and building products who is willing to run point for me.

All of the code I lifted so far is public domain.
