The Very Slow Movie Player

VSMP is an object that contains a Raspberry Pi computer, custom software, and a reflective ePaper display (similar to a Kindle), all housed inside a 3D printed case. Every 2.5 minutes a frame from the film stored on the computer’s memory card is extracted, converted to black and white using a dithering algorithm, and then communicated to the reflective ePaper display. This adds up to playing the film at a rate of 24 frames per hour, which is in contrast to the traditional speed of 24 frames per second. That’s the slow part, obviously.

Großartiges Projekt von Dash Marshall, das ich mir auch sofort in Wohn-, Schlaf- und Arbeitszimmer stellen würde. (via Kottke)
