Graphing calculator web browser lets you visit your favorite sine wave fan sites (video)

Graphing calculators: essential tools for math education or low-res Game Boys? The debate rages on. Advocates of non-mathematical applications for the devices have scored a major victory with the introduction of Gossamer, a new web browser for various TI graphing calculators, which lets users visit some very basic versions of webpages, using the CALCnet and globalCALCnet protocols. The 1.0 version can request, display, and scroll pages. Logging in will bring you to a portal with links — the application’s developer has promised to add the ability to directly enter URLs in a future version, however. There’s a demo video after the break, though you may want to wait until after math class to check it out.

Casio Graphing Calculator with High-Res Color Screen

src="http://www.slipperybrick.com/index.php?feedimage=wp-content/uploads/2010/10/Casio-Prizm.jpg" alt="" title="Casio Graphing Calculator with High-Res Color Screen" width="500" height="358" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-54574" />Normally calculators are boring. Not anymore. The Prizm fx-CG10 hits stores January 2011 and it will change the face of calculators forever. That’s because it sports a high-resolution 65,367-color 3.7″ display.

Some cool features include: the new Picture Plot technology where you can choose one of 55 different images that the calculator graphs for you. You can also produce color coded graphs on the Prizm. You can also display your calculations on a screen without connecting the Prizm to a PC.

Nice. Math geeks will love this one. $ 129.99.

Is There Room In Your Life For The Awesome Prizm Full-Color Graphing Calculator?


Kids these days. Why, when I was taking Calculus, we had to use graph paper, and the pixels on our TI-83s were so big that you couldn’t tell whether you were looking at paraboli or hyperboli! The games were simpler back then, too. Drug War. Race. Janky Asteroids. Now you’ve got a full-color screen and more power than I had in my third computer!

Yeah yeah, time goes on. And Casio is attempting to take the crown from Texas Instruments by putting out this ridiculous beast, the Prizm SMPR. Sure, the 9850 does color, but not like this. You’ll probably be playing Game Boy Advance games on its ~165×165 screen and its 65,536 colors.

Casio has made the colors correspond to different functions or classifications of data, and includes a bunch of pictures with mathematical qualities (naturally-occurring curve functions and such). Not bad, but at $ 130, I suppose it’s more aimed at the seasoned graphing calculator aficionado than the high school junior. Kids, I tell you, they don’t know how good they have it.

DIYer constructs 4.3-inch Open SciCal graphing calculator, puts your TI-83+ to shame

What’s 4.3-inches diagonally, costs $200 to build and has absolutely no reception issues when held as shown in the image above? Why, the Open SciCal! Matt Stack, the genius who pieced this gem together, relied on a 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 CPU, 8GB SD card, WiFi module and a spartan web browser in order to concoct what’s likely the most desirable graphing calculator this side of Pluto. The handheld device weighs about 1.6 pounds, runs Linux as well as the statistically inclined R, and is reportedly capable of doing roughly twice as much crunching as Texas Instruments’ Nspire. Skeptical? Considering that this bad boy sucked down stock data from Yahoo! Finance and ran auto-correlation on the numbers in order to near-instantly report current trends, we’re guessing TI (or any other graphing calculator company, really) has no room to argue. Hit the source for more details, and don’t worry — that feeling of insignificance wanes with time.

TI-Nspire graphing calculator gets a new touchpad, nerds swoon world o’er

Texas Instruments has been making graphing calculators for twenty years now, and things look pretty much the same as they were in that bygone era of Amy Grant and C&C Music Factory. The company’s latest, TI-Nspire with Touchpad, features — you guessed it! — a touchpad above the keypad for scrollin’ around, as well as a letterpad (apparently they had to forgo QWERTY to make this compliant with tests like SAT and ACT). And, like its precursors, it comes with a snap-in TI-84 Plus keypad so your old dog won’t have to learn any keystrokes. Available now from your fave e-tailer, look to pay around $140.
