LZ: Re: Ideas on input
This is a great idea! I'm for this all the way since I totally support
extensions of the TI-85's capabilities. I don't think the RAM expander has
a calc "thru" port though since I asked Mel about this. Also, I think you
should find someone else but Mel to do this since Mel's still working on
the RAM expander and also he's sorta busy.

: Does anyone who has experience with electronics think that it would be
: possible to put a transparent touch-sensitive piece over the 85's screen
: and use a stylus to determine where the cursor is? If we can get the data
: in through the i/o port (Hopefully on the ram extender, hint, hint) then
: writing software to use it wouldn't be too difficult. A grayscale
: program would become feasable, as would many other games requiring better
: movement. Who knows? Maybe a track ball is possible. Anyone have any
: on this?
