Even in plastic I think this could still be done, but it's much harder. On my older 83+, after a few years of use the paint on certain keys was already starting to come out.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

How large is it compared to a 83+?

I'd say about three times as large. It's meant to be easily visible on an overhead projector.

Keys are much more responsible than I feared (I've had bad experiences with glass buttons like these, but they work great) and the screen is crisp and can be adjusted for contrast. I'm going to install Chameleon tomorrow and see how it is as a TI-83 Plus :D

Seriously? Wow O.O

And glad to hear about the keys. I wonder how hard playing Fruit Ninja on this will be, though... :P

Whoa, that's a good idea!

I'd imagine it'd be easier—the keys are all flat and at the same height, after all.
