I like everything about the pitch for the Playdate except when they describe the screen as having no backlight and "high reflectivity". When I think reflective screen I think glare. E-ink displays are designed to be easy to view under bright light, and I've never seen them described as "reflective", although maybe they are, in the technical sense. I'm not sure.
@matt yeah I doubt it's e-ink
spoiler: cheap-ass reflective LCDs use a mirror as part of their optical path
@matt oh yeah so apparently it's using the same memory LCD tech that the original Pebble did.
@fluffy Nice! I hear the Pebble looked pretty good.
@matt yeah its screen was fantastic
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
