repub project

An open source, open hardware e-reader. The intent for this page will be to document the design process up to it being usable. Then to document buying/getting/making and hacking on your own.

  1. A fulling functioning offline library and ebook reader
  2. Federated cloud library support
  3. Audio book player
  4. music player
  5. Store

This may take some time.
