There may be no dearth of E Ink picture frames out there but here is one that is different in that it is specifically designed to show the traditional Chinese landscape scrolls in the most innovative manner. Put another way, the E Ink picture frame courtesy of Dheera Venkatraman is able to display, as Hackaday stated on its site, ‘an infinitely scrolling, Shan Shui-style landscape that never repeats.”
Rather, it’s a Raspberry Pi Zero that serves as the computational backbone and runs the script written by Lingdong. Further, it’s a 10.3-inch E Ink display that Dheera used which in turn has been mounted in a picture frame sourced off the shelf. All of it makes things look simple yet brilliant with a different picture shown each time you look at it. Also, so elegantly the entire thing has been set up so that it could be virtually impossible to make out its smart electronics at work here.
Rather, it can be easily passed off as a magical picture frame capable of displaying a different picture each time. It’s something that people would love staring at too what with such historical artworks of the likes of A Thousand Li of Rivers and Mountains and Dwelling in the Fuchun Mountains that the landscape image gets its inspiration from.
With a keen interest in tech, I make it a point to keep myself updated on the latest developments in the world of technology and gadgets. That includes smartphones or tablet devices but stretches to even AI and self-driven automobiles as well, the latter being my latest fad. Besides writing, I like watching videos, reading, listening to music, or experimenting with different recipes. Motion picture is another aspect that interests me a lot and maybe I’ll make a film sometime in the future.
