I want a wind-up e-ink 8-bit hand-held computer now.

I just realised this sounds a bit like Panic’s Play date console. Wind-up power is what I meant. :)

@whtrbt when you say wind up, are you thinking, like there's a hand crank that powers a generator to charge up some batteries, or where you thinking more of a thing where you wind up a spring and store mechanical energy that way?

@julie a spring would be the most awesome, like those wind up torches.
