Product Description

This product is retired and we won’t sell it anymore. This page is for reference only.


If you’re like us, you thought: “If only I could use a screen like this in my project”, first time you saw an e-book reader. Thanks to the exceptional sharpness and contrast, the ability to display in sunlight and truly unprecedented efficiency in terms of energy (it consumes energy only when changing the content on the screen), electronic paper is the ideal choice for many applications. Inkplate 6COLOR, continuing the tradition of the now well-known Inkplate series, continues to offer variations of e-paper accessible to hobbyists and everyone else in a way that we have made plug-and-play hardware, really easy to use and compatible with Arduino and micropython. Inkplate 6COLOR brings a unique innovation – the ability to display colors on the screen.


If we want to list only a few features, Inkplate 6COLOR has a 5.85-inch folded e-paper that displays a total of 7 different colors. Considering the built-in dithering capability, the results you can get on the screen are really impressive. It’s powered by an ESP32, so you have a powerful microcontroller with WiFi and Bluetooth at your disposal. With our Arduino library, it will take you 5 minutes to start working with the board. Inkplate 6COLOR is 100% open source software and hardware.
