PLEASE LIMIT ONE PER ORDER. I want to get these first few kits to as many folks as possible.

This kit contains everything you need to build your own Open Book Abridged Edition,  EXCEPT for a Raspberry Pi Pico (which you can buy on this shop or elsewhere). Bring Your Own Pico!

In the kit: 

  • One component card with all the surface mount components you'll need.
  • One anti-static bag with the through-hole buttons
  • A 64 MB Flash card preloaded with the language data and a few public domain works.
  • One surface-mount AAA battery holder
  • One 4.2 inch e-paper display
  • A printed circuit board for you to solder all the parts to.

Detailed assembly instructions are printed on the circuit board, and there is additional documentation on the Oddly Specific Objects web site.

MicroSD card notes:

  • On first boot, your Open Book will need to copy the language data from the babel.bin file on the SD card to the on-board Flash chip.
  • Make sure to plug your Open Book into a reliable power source or for this step; it will take about a minute, and it's very important that you don't interrupt this process.
  • Once this step is complete, you can delete babel.bin from the MicroSD card.
