Caleb's Wooden TI-82 Becomes Available For Sale
« on: June 12, 2014, 06:16:49 pm »
Greetings. That "Maplen TI-82" I made (http://www.cemetech.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=219811) is now available for auction on eBay. It eh, is interesting, please tell all your friends and teachers about this: I especially envision this on a teacher's desk or something, as it's not terribly useful, being a TI-82, more iconic and a work of art. Here is a picture, for those who haven't seen:



It's available here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/111380133505.
Please consider bidding, but again, I just hope all who could be interested will see it. :) And, there is a youtube video in the Cemetech topic I linked to first. Thank you.

Does it work?


EDIT: Never mind, I read the Cemetech.  How did you make it?

Gotta read more of the Cemetech for that! ;) It is, I want to say, very painstakingly handmade (with electric tools), not with like a Carvewright or something. Every button is individually made, for example!

Dang  O.O O.O O.O 
I've always wanted to do something like that but don't have the tools or the knowledge (or the patience, for that matter  :P )


edit: I saw the video and this thing looks nicer than a regular 82. I especially like how you made the keys like a ti83+/84.

Shut up and take my money! :P

Well, assuming the auction doesn't go up to $1000 or something and/or that I win. I always wondered if you would ever produce multiple copies of this or put the first to auction one day :D

I remember seeing this over at Cemetech. It's really a beauty. I'm actually kind of surprised that you're selling it. I've got it on the watch list for now. ;)

When I saw it, it was at $40

Sort of cheap for something you seem to have put a lot of effort into.
I would try to get it if I didn't owe $200/can't use ebay.

Welp people sell retro consoles for insane prices just because they have a modchip inside. There's obviously much more work that went into this than into soldering 4 wires.

We all know being paid for having an Nspire is overpriced anyway. :trollface:
