I think I received some more technical things by mail.
Let me find them and post them here. (I'm on my phone right now, that will be in a few minutes sorry ^^)
A sunday? Can't you just leave your TI contacts alone during the week-end, Adriweb?

Nah, I got the mail 2 days ago I think.
About the technical things, I actually can't disclose them, after having checked, but here's a photo with some things
Sorry but I had to "blue" some parts

Does this reduce Nspire CX battery life to 5 minutes per charge?

TI on facebook, 2 hours ago:
Did they like it? or not?
But at least, we hope you liked it: the TI-Planet / Omnimaga common April Fool's prank!
People you can write to in order to thank them or blame them:
- me for the idea
- Levak for generating the images with Blender

that's a great idea and the blending is also great, I wasn't fooled because I am studying engineering and I didn't though it could be feasible in such a small size and with the battery power of the nspires despite there are some new mobile phones with the pico projector and similar battery packs I wasn't seeing TI introducing this to calculators this fast... And after all TI would make it big so it could look expensive and sell it around 400US$.
and me for the photoshopping of the photo (was originally a navigator wifi plug
That's what I though

Yeah, that would be a great idea for TI.

Spoiler for Quote:
We are in 2034. The situation on Earth is catastrophic. The ozone layer has been completely destroyed by the carbonic gas of automobiles, the chemical industries, and the poosh-poosh in little cans. In the end, the earth cooks under the rays of the sun. We must find a planet on which can live 6 billion idiots. The planetary federation turns to the strongest country in the world: Canada. It is Canadian knowledge that has allowed, on October 28, 2034, the launch of the spaceship Romano Fafard, which leaves earth to search the confines of the Universe. Where the hand of man has never set foot.
I hate TI right now
You make me lose the game
Everytime I read your name

According to the Pico docs (found
, page 12), it uses about 5V. The Nspire probably has more than enough. Then again, I'm not too sure how much voltage it outputs for that connector...

That was a great prank, and if the other news are fake too, nice ones as well.
I wasn't fooled, noticing the date, but since we typically post both real and fake news on April 1st I wasn't too sure actually. To me it seemed too good to be true and even if it was true, I bet TI would charge insane prices for it, so nobody would be able to afford it except rich schools.
Btw per Omni standards, on April 2nd you might want to add a [color=#995500] at the start of your fake news and a [/color] at the end, like every other April 1st and fake news. That will keep things consistent
