Stupid thing my brain keeps thinking about. Concept for an open source game console similar to a Gameboy Pocket with a monochrome screen and two face buttons.

@kion Even though it's to the point where monochrome screens are more expensive than color, I still love them! It's part of why I like my Palm Vx so much.

@OpenComputeDesign I'd really like to have an e-ink display on something like this, except the refresh rate is terrible. And the ascetic on monochrome when done right looks amazing.


@kion e-ink is awesome, but at around 1fps, it'd really only be usable for ultra-slow games like simple puzzles, frame-by-frame myst like games, and certain types of point-and-click and turn-based games.
