During the first sign of life tests of P2, which I was lucky to follow along live, I think I heard Ken say, he was evaluating ePaper displays for a possible P2 board.
Now I'm wondering if we will see a board with that kind of display and I would be very excited if it also had a wifi option.
Another thing that I think I read in the forums a couple years ago was Chip mentioning that the P2 may work as a self-contained system.
So one could just plug in a keyboard and a display and start spinning.
To bring back the simplicity and joy devices like this one had:
In the company where I work we sometimes build little IoT projects for evaluation or demonstration purposes because one of our main business is designing visual interfaces for embedded devices in machines.
For the last project we used the Arduino MKR 1010 WiFi.
The ease of use of WiFi on that device was impressive for me, but I was really disappointed by the limited number of I/O pins and the restrictions on which one to use for which task.
I remembered how easy it was in my Propeller 1 projects some years ago to control multiple motors, read their encoders, render text onto a display, generate an IR signal to release the shutter of a camera and read some buttons - all at the same time, all in the same chip, without worrying about timing or interrupts.
So no matter what the first board availible for public purchase will look like - I will buy it, as soon as it's available in Germany.
But maybe you could tease a bit on what we can expect ;-)
