Cooking with Cemetech
Posted by Ryan on 10 December 2014, 03:22 GMT

As we've come to expect, things have been a-brewin' over at Cemetech in the past couple of weeks. Some kind of wicked brew? Nah, too predictable. Perhaps a secret sauce that has been algorithmically optimized? Eh, it's been done. A simmering soup of stupendous scientific and scholarly surprises? Getting warmer. Then again, maybe I'm just hungry.

Nevertheless, there have been a few big things popping up from Cemetech and one Christopher "Kerm Martian" Mitchell recently. Let's lift the lid and see what's inside!

  • First, Doors CSE, the shell that keeps on shelling, has seen a recent update that fixes some issues in anticipation of future updates. In fact, one might say that it's opened some doors to future updates... Anything? No?

  • Next up, a camera connected to your calc? It's more likely than you think. A lot of places picked up the story of a recent achievement combining ArTICL (an Arduino library, for those not in the know), a calc, and a Gameboy Camera (what, no printer?) to create a fantastic selfie-box out of your favorite handheld math tool. Absolutely awesome.

  • Finally, the 13th Cemetech Contest is underway. Its theme is "Space + Cats + Games", which means that it genuinely could not be any better. There's still plenty of time to get your entries submitted, so free up some RAM and get coding!

Exciting times in the calculator world!

I see many uses for this ArTICL library, especially seeing how cheap an Arduino is.

Thanks! We already have a number of examples in the repository, including reading and writing digital and analog pins using standard Send()/Get()/GetCalc() commands, taking screenshots from the calculator with an Arduino, and triggering keypresses on the calculator from the Arduino. I hope hobbyists and teachers will explore the ArTICL library as a fun and easy way to interface calculators and DIY electronics.

It's just my hobby, but it consumes so much of my free time that I think I need a hobby to relax from the stress of my hobby.

That is when hobbies reach the meta-space.

UT, Age of Empires, and Minecraft. But then those end up stealing way too much of my time instead.
