BADGEr: An eReader Badge and Arduino Shield

Wyolum teamed up with a few other guys and came up with this little piece of eReader awesomeness! And its also an arduino shield too - it makes me wanna cry for not having one.

Anool's badge above is a sample for the the up-comming open hardware summit (OHS 2013!). This badge that you can wear around OHS is also an Arduino compatible board and can be programmed using the Arduino IDE by selecting Arduino Pro Mini 3v3. If the power of the built in AtMega328 is not enough for ya - you can always piggy back another Arduino and the badge will act like an arduino shield that takes care of the eReader functionality. Not only that this badge has an uSD card slot where you can store images and fonts.

This is not called eReader if it cant display books right? Check the badge reading Crime and Punishment by Fydor Dostoevsky.
