More Casio Prizm information
« on: November 11, 2010, 09:46:07 am »
As reported on Casio-BANK (the Casio incarnation of TI-BANK), teachers at certain places of the world could finally put their hands on a prototype of the Casio Prizm calculator that is coming out in January. Here are some Youtube videos:

Nethamland:

Baltimore:


The good and bad news is that from what TI-BANK reports, there is support for add-ins, which is the Casio version of Flash APPs, meaning that 3rd-party ASM or C development might be possible on those machines. The calculator comes with 3 apps. Also, the calculator is recognized as an USB jumpdrive by computers, minimizing the hassle caused by software transfers. The bad news is that there is no CAS. Maybe the community could eventually create one?

You can also find some pictures of the motherboard at Casio-BANK in the link above and here.

If you can program C and Asm( you can make a CAS :)

Looks very good though! Will Texas ever do a coloured calculator?

Honestly, I don't see that as much of a surprise. They intended it for 6-12 grades, so CAS would be out unless they wanted a separate CAS version.

Yay for third party C!

Is it just me, or is Casio doing everything we wanted TI to do? ;D

Not just you. C Programming, Colours...

Lots of people have suggested migrating, but Casio's graphics aren't that good, are they?

216x384 reso with 65535 colors ... that's pretty good for a calc.

Too bad about the CAS, though. One thing the Nspire still has an edge on :)
