@th Are you planning on doing a write up on this somewhere ?

@ken_fallon eventually! right now it is a bundle of hacks held together with breadboard jumper wires. github.com/osresearch/psionpi

@th join the kicad club! All the cool kids are doing it under duress

@th Do GUI apps handle monochrome display? That font rendering seems like it's assuming the display is fancier.

@csepp X has support for monochrome since many early xterminals were mono, but almost no modern applications are written to handle it and crash if it isn't a TrueColor. And the Psion display is 2-bit, so I'm hoping to figure out how to get at least four shades of gray like the original NeXT.

@th wow wow wow! everytime i see these cute old hanhdled pc, I have something like this in mind
