Solum 2.2 inch Electronic Shelf Label Teardown

Quick peek inside the EL029F3WRA In light of the recent news that the OpenEPaperLink firmware has been ported to the nRF52811 series of chips, I decided to take a look inside the Solum EL029F3WRA to see if it was a viable candidate for a project. As it turns out, it is very similar to the 2.9 inch tags. I hope to soon have a simple CAD model of the ESL which I’ll use to model a basic pogo-pin programming jig for this particular ESL.

Roborock S8 Pro Ultra Teardown

Roborock S8 teardown I recently acquired the new S8 from Roborock to replace my rapidly failing roomba. While I am patiently waiting for Dennis and Hypfer to add Valetudo support, I thought I’d have a peek inside to see if this model will be any more serviceable or maintainable than my current vacuum. From what I’m told, the S7 and the S8 are supposed to be pretty similar so here’s to hoping that it’s not too much more of a wait.
