E-Ink Shield - Arduino Uno Compatible (2 in, 172x72) (101289)

Finally! A shield is here, so you don’t have to waste time dealing with all those pesky wires. Quickly and easily connect your shield to your Arduino Uno or copycat and upload your display.

Electronic Ink or as we like to think, Everlasting Ink, imitates the look of normal ink on paper. Famous for its use in E-Readers, it has high visibility and contrast, a wide viewing angle, and low power requirements. In fact, once you program the display with text or images, it will last and last, even when there is no battery powering it.

One of the great benefits of this type of method is that power is only required to change the display. Another is its readability. Mimicking ink on paper, it is easy on the eyes and reads well in direct sunlight.

We’ve got some tutorials down below to get you started with an Arduino displaying text, images, and data!
