hi all

Has anybody scrolled there way through a home made ebook reader project?

so if anyone can point me in the right direction will be great!

thx in advance

Forget it. You would need to connect up a high-resolution backlit LCD or TFT display, drives circuit, whole minature computer...

Buy a PDA. The iPaqs are comfortable to hold and read on, though they do run the most terrible operating system I have ever encountered.

Hey its not as hard as the above one states. go to http://www.gumstix.org they sell linux based computers the size (width) of a pack of gum that come with like sound cards USB network etc.. and there are even instructions on how to hook up different types of LCD screens touch and non touch.. soo if you are determined to make it thats your best bet. If you just want a quick solutin dont go with the IPaq (IPaq.. if your going PDA there are better than the IPaq... that do the same thing for cheaper and look better hell i use my Tungsten E3 its comfortable and easier to read IMHO).. the AXIM or the Zaurus (expecally the Zaurus.. they are hard to find but conics.net sells them completely converted to english and they come with a keyboard and java to boot) are also really good choices.. the IPaq i have had a lotta problems with software in the OS.. but meh to each their own... but if you do make one post pics man post pics... id love to see it
