Description

A lot of things to see on this Ferris-inspired board:

The Zaphod PCB features an onboard nRF52840 via Holyiot module and runs ZMK as the firmware.

The display is not e-ink but a Sharp memory LCD. Faster refresh rate than EPD, but low power since they use ambient light to be visible. (Refresh rate demonstration here).

It's actually a low power LCD, with the power saving over traditional LCDs coming from the use of integrated memory.

The actual build on the pic features low profile Choc White keyswitches with MBK blank caps (MBK Holo on homing keys and Pseudoku Asymplex artisan/custom convex thumbs.)
