Casio Prizm - Color graphic calculator
« on: October 08, 2010, 01:26:03 pm »
I haven't posted here in a long time, but I thought you guys might be interested:


Coming out in January 2011, it has a 216x384 65,536 color display and 16 MB of flash for apps. There's a video of it here:



You could see in the old classroom a TI-Nspire. Then while the old classroom is being transformed into a modern one, the TI-Nspire changes to a CASIO Prizm.

Whoa!
It looks more like a cell phone-Ipod than a calculator, though...

This can probably be epic, if done right.

*Thinks about being able to use a 216x384 screen with FFFFh colors*

I don't think Axe would work very well with it :P

*Suspects the Casio community will shortly exceed the TI community in cool projects*

Unless it has full asm support, i dont think there will be any cool projects for it :P But seeing as the calc has *apps* it does look promising o.O

If you can jailbreak an Iphone into accepting Assembly, I'm sure you can do it with a Calculator. But you're right, that would cut down on the number of projects. If Casio is smart, then they'll try to appeal to the nerds Calculator community with program support.

yayz!  now that means TI's got to release something good now to keep up!

but then again, schools probably won't like those which will mean TI doesn't have to do anything...  :(

Does look very cell phone like although I think it looks too big for it to resemble a cell phone by the look of its size. I wonder how programmable it is...
