Double you pleasure

How hard would it be to combine two paperwhites? An external frame holding the two side by side, and software manging them both as a book? Frame should have the capability to "close" the book, having the two screens face each other, thus protectd during travel?

For this I WOULD switch from my KDXG!

As this would imply very serious changes to the user interface logic of the proprietary, closed-source reader software, I'd say: rather hard.

It's certainly a matter of taste, thus not really worth discussing, but personally I find the newly gained possibilities of such an approach negligible compared with the things that get worse: availability of covers, weight, price, ...

ASUS proposed it three years ago, you might be able to find a "used" one, real cheap:

I don't recall hearing that the device was ever produced or moved beyond the concept stage.

OK, possibly not a good idea. I'm so frustrated by the lack of Kindle DX Paper white...

You might want to follow geekmaster's project to put 64 of them in an 8x8 grid on his wall.

If he can get one of them to divide up the page 64 different ways (passing 63 of the parts to the other devices);
Then your splitting the image into 2 parts should be simple.

My latest batch of K3s just arrived hours ago, and it has many fewer working eink screens than the previous batch.

To get an 8x8 grid, I will have to mix screens between models.

Surprisingly, I discovered that the K3 and K5 use the same eink connector, so at some point I need to try a K5 screen in a K3 (or vice versa).

I certainly plan to make it look better than these eink walls:
