On a recent trip to Europe, BC OSS enthusiast Gef Tremblay pieced together something he calls KindleBerry Pi from minimal kit he brought along on his journey. He’s networked a Kindle with a Raspberry Pi over USB and is multiplexing a terminal using GNU screen. The nice thing is that, since he’s basically using the Kindle as a dumb terminal, he’s able to use an actual QWERTY keyboard. It doesn’t seem like he got the 3G working on the Kindle, for a truly mobile experience, but It’s still an impressive hack and shows off top-notch on-the-go ingenuity and improvisation. [via HN]
