If you have any news, photos and/or videos from Planet's booth at CES, please post them here!

I'll start by posting this tweet from Planet, showing the external display in action:

Someone on Indiegogo has mentioned that the display itself will run Wear OS, acting as a standalone device, but no confirmation has been found yet, so at this point this is most likely a speculation.

Looking back at this old thread, I cannot help but wonder if this might be true? Would be interesting for Planet Computers to release enough information on the cover display to do interesting things with it...

I'm fairly sure I read somewhere / saw in a video that it's FreeRTOS on an STM32-series microcontroller.

I found a couple of references to FreeRTOS online, not sure how reliable these are, I can't find anything directly from PC.

I remember hearing this from one of the videos.
I feel like they designed it this way (FreeRTOS on its own processor) so that it will be easier for the community to build tools to interface with it in linux. I hope there will be an API of some sort.

It could perhaps be this video: https://youtu.be/OZZ3zm3-xr8 by Charbax, featuring Dr. Janko.
At 6:27, Dr Janko starts talking a little about the cover display.
At 7:35, he mentions it runs on a STM-32 and also that the screen is 2" and 240x536 pixles.
At 19:46, he mentions the CoDi is running their API on top of emWin from Segger, which in turn runs on FreeRTOS.
At 20:11 he says "We'll open up the API so people can use it" (is in the context of the Linux developer community).
