I don't intend to build one of these (there's just not enough time for everything) but it's a great idea: take a Raspberry Pi computer, attach it to e-paper (like the display a Kindle uses) and then run movies on them at the rate of 32 frames per hour, ie., very slowly. The result is a movie experience that runs for days and monthss instead of a couple of hours. The article first outlines the concept and describes how it would help create a new type of media, and then goes into a detailed description of how it's built (detailed enough that you could probably follow along and build one yourself).
