Guys, wish you all nothing but the best on this but the thought just crossed my mind. I am not a hardcore techie like you seem to be, but a corporate tech manager for ages so...

Having seen the video I can't help but wonder - if something like this was/appears to be [relatively speaking] "easy" to do by people without access to actual Amazon code and Kindle core HW components, it begs the question:

How come Amazon [and other eink devices makers] haven't already done it?

Surely the flashing during page changes could not possibly be considered a feature of the tech.

I only ask because the more I think about it, the more I wonder about what, if any, long-term, potentially detrimental effects this kinda non-flashing hack might have on the Kindle screens themselves?

Perhaps a stupid question as I am not hardcore techie and apologies if my concern/question is totally ignorant of the HW facts/specs involved, but any thoughts?

@khmann, totally not tying to rain on your parade here. I think this is awesome. Hope you understand where I am coming from.
