True me too. That would be awesome  XD I would so prank people with that!

I can see this being somewhat fun to tinker with using a Ti-83+, but why don't we just use a Casio Prizm or a TI Nspire and find out something epic to use this for?
Keep trying.

If you want something epic to use it for, why not a proper computer? It's not as if the nspire isn't also an extremely limited platform.

I only have an 83+, that's why I only post these projects for this platform. And isn't it the tinkering with a limited platform what we enjoy and doesn't the fun come from the challenge?

That was my point, yes. If we really wanted to do these kinds of projects in a practical way, there are much better alternatives. Working with the resources we have on hand is part of the challenge, in my opinion.

Woah, cool!
Now you got me thinking about a calculator controlled microwave

That's totally feasible. Just get a few relays, or rip the controls out of an existing microwave.

When I read the title, I expected you to have made a remote out of a calc by creating some sort of plug attachment. But this is cool too. :)

This is what I expected as well. However, I have to say that I was not disappointed. This is quite awesome! :D

:GetCalc("applianceMicrowave",Y2)
:Send(Y1,Y2,{Y1-2}r)
:setTime(30)
:"seconds"->TInterval
:startTmr

lol  XD

I'd love that! :D


I was actually thinking of something more versatile, kinda an Axe-to-Arduino interface - giving you all the major Arduino functions (pinMode, digitalRead/Write, analogRead/Write, Serial interface, etc) in the axiom and a slave program running on the arduino/atmega/attiny. Maybe that will lead more people to include their calc into their hardware hacking projects and create more awesomeness :)

I like the idea of extremely limited platforms being used for complicated tasks. Forget the Nspire idea.
I think I'm going to use this to communicate with somebody else accross a room via calc. :P
Keep trying.

Well, Keoni29 made a linking protocol for Axe + Arduino stuff. ;) I guess more of these interfaces can't hurt anyway. :P

I remembered that one, but my idea is quite a bit different - you load a single program to the AVR which makes it act like a slave and does everything for thr calc. The main program is running on the calc and giving Low level commands to the AVR - instead of just a linking protocol for bytes.
