I am wondering if anybody has done anything like what I am think?
Not that I know of... Looks cool though... You could run this over WiFi instead of USB if you wanted to as well...

Maybe a kindlet for the base application? or it could be a native application, depending on your skills... geekmaster and others here have gotten video piped to the eink display... Displaying it wouldn't be hard, just actually writing the program...


What kindle model are you planning to use?
