A Look at the PET Project
Posted by Michael on 11 March 2008, 05:16 GMT

Joerg Woerner of the Datamath Calculator Museum has obtained six prototype calculators on loan from TI and documented them. These calculators were part of the PET project which we previously reported on. These calculators were intended to become the next generation of graphing calculators and ran Linux, had wireless connectivity, and much more.

Wow, it looks like these would have been a lot of fun to mess around with. Too bad.

Right, a Linux-based device would have been much nicer than the completely locked-down Nspire they released. :-(

Yes... imagine it. It would have been like a computer in your hand. But TI wanted to sell to the educational market, so oh well.

Too bad, rather than having no 'proper math' keyboard, these seem more like PCs. I'd rather buy something that kind and add software like mathematica to it. Anyway, by that time, computers (hopefully :p) would be way better, oh well... *sigh*
