Looks pretty impressive :o nice job
This looks absolutely fantastic and actually professional (old school too lol). Nicely done and I'm glad it's coming to frution. How far from being done is the software? What's functional in it so far?
Thanks a lot ;D
The Software is in a very early stage. I might actually start from scratch again, so that the Software might be used in a future community calculator. If so, I would make it open source from the very beginning on. The Software would still be monochrome Screen only, however, I don't see a huge need for a color screen to be honest.
So far there is a simple four function calc that works well, but has no interesting features except for the Keyboard entry which is working really well and seems to be fairily intuitive.
I forgot to mention that I will be porting Claw to it when that one is ready :)

Does the calculator produce some heat by the way? You could maybe add some holes on the back of the case near the sides for ventilation (although I'm unsure if it would require adding protection against dust).
Actually I don't think it produces any heat really. The only suspect is the screen which is exposed to the outside anyways and can cool off easily and the battery charger, which can cool off after the charge. The CPU is not getting warm.
Thanks for suggesting, anyways. :)
