The scope/goal of this project was to create a picture frame enclosing an e-paper device which plays movies in a very slow manner.

This project was inspired by Tom Whitwell’s Very Slow Movie Player which I have read about on Hackaday. Ever since, I wanted to create my own. So, eventually, I did.

To achieve the goal, a Waveshare 10.3 inch 16 gray scale color e-paper device and a Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W with Raspberry Pi OS for operating system were chosen.

While the software can be modified to run on different hardware and operating systems, doing so is out of the scope of this project.

The physical picture frame was made by Nagy Sándor Képkeretező Műhely és Művészbolt as I do not have the required tools and expertise create such a wonderful frame.”
