I'll not be going much into the technical details about the BADGEr and Electronic paper display technologies.

Rather this consider this instructable as the manual for getting started with BADGEr easily

.

Step 1: Things We Need

  • BADGEr- The e-reader board (or other similar development boards from Adafruit)
  • FTDI Basic from sparkfun

Same as found in lilypad development board or alternatively you can use Adafruit's FTDI Friend.

Step 2: Setting Up the Demo Files

If you are using windows (as most of you will be )

Download the files from github and extract them in your folder arduino folder

If you are up from linux (in my case ubuntu ) , extract your files and merge them with sketchbook folder. (see the images )

Now do the following things :

  • Plug in your card reader into a USB port on your system .
  • Go to files >>home >> sketchbook>>libraries>>EReader>>Examples
  • Copy the folders named "Album" , "Images" and unifont.wff to your SD Card.
  • `Now insert the card back to BADGEr

Step 3: Upload the Code and Viola!

  • Plug in your USB Cable and select COM Port
  • Select the board as "

    Arduino Pro Mini 3v3 8MHz"

  • Go to examples>>EReader>>Ereader_Demo and upload the code

That's all for now.
