Adafruit Flexible Monochrome eInk ePaper Displays

Adafruit Flexible Monochrome eInk ePaper Displays are high-contrast, low-power monochrome displays that simulate ink on paper, displaying black pixels on a whiteish background. These flexible display panels update in seconds, and once an image is displayed, it will stay even once you remove power. These eInk Displays are offered in 2.13" and 2.9" variants.

Please note: this display is flexible but that doesn't mean it should be constantly flexed:

  • These displays should not be flexed/moved during a display update to decrease display errors
  • Continuously flexing it will eventually damage the display
  • There's no specification for how many times it can be flexed, so keep it minimal
  • It is recommended to mount the display to a stable backing to reduce stresses, such as a stiff curved bracelet to make a watch

The displays can be easily programmed using Adafruit's CircuitPython or Arduino libraries. An eInk/ePaper Breakout Board, such as the Adafruit E-Ink Breakout Friend, is also recommended.
