Thanks - extremely interesting! I'll probably resort to their kits if
I don't find something pre-made :/

Eg, I've seen hardware around that does what I need (low power,
wireless, eink display, reasonable enclosure), I just need to find
where to buy it :/ so I can focus on the software part.

Thanks,
Carlo
