TI's new peripheral for the CE and Nspire CX
« on: February 26, 2016, 01:21:54 am »
As of today (the 25th), the "public" T^3 international conference hasn't started yet (that's on the 26th), but some sessions have already taken place for the T3 instructors. So, I'm not allowed to attend then, but I've been exceptionally invited by TI to one, which was about things that we have been noticing the past few days... And I can even talk about it - Thanks TI! :D

TI will soon (≈ fall) launch the "TI-Innovator", external device compatible with the TI-84 Plus CE / TI-83 Premium CE et TI-Nspire CX (CAS), and defined as "A project-based system that enables students to learn basic coding and design, use those skills to program and build working solutions, and connect science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) concepts."


TI-Innovator™ Hub with TI LaunchPad™ technology
  • Plug-and-play ready with TI-84 Plus CE and TI-Nspire™ CX technology
  • Built-in single and multi-color LEDs, speaker and brightness sensor
  • Multiple ports and breadboard connector available for use with activities
  • Durable classroom-ready protective enclosure
  • TI LaunchPad™ technology built in
TI will also provide "expansion packs": "Fundamentals", "Resistors, capacitors, LEDS and other components for design activities that explore electronics principles.", and "Science", "Sensors, motors and other components for projects that connect science concepts, programming and coding skills."

Activities tailored several use cases are also going to be available:


Note: Regarding USB things, OS updates for the CE and CX are scheduled for around "Fall 2016", which will refine/improve what's already there in version 5.1.5 et 4.2 of respectively the CE and CX.
I was also able to see a little something about the future CE 5.2 OS that a lot of us will appreciate, but I'm not allowed to talk about it... so you'll find out by yourself when it's released ;D

That looks kind of interesting... I'll be watching how this turns out :)

Holy hell, there are so many news lately. As a result I didn't notice this one and now it appears second on the front page due to the other topic being more recent >.<. But anyway, I wonder what this device will mean for the programming community? Will it allow new hobbyist possibilities? And how much will it cost?

Looks pretty good. Will it also feature a 8192 bit rsa key? :P
But yeah its basically a raspberry pi that connects to a calculator?
How expensive will it be?

Cool  ;D But Adriweb, I think you mistranslated the TI-Ïnnovator release date, because on TIPlanet you said printemps (=spring) and on CW fall (=autumn=automne) :P
Also, the troll smiley does exist on CW :trollface:

Excuse my ignorance, but aside from the builtin calc connectivity, what exactly are the benefits of this over just using an Arduino with some shields?

I'd guess it's better for your warranty, if that's anything you care about. Plus official support from TI means HW projects can become more widespread.

I'm unsure if using an Arduino with some shields can void the Nspire warranty, though? I'm definitively curious about the benefits of this over the Arduino, though. Maybe TI will try to sell the idea to schools so that students learn from it, but have schools disallow alternatives such as the Arduino? I don't know.

Well, if you mess something up and fry the USB port of your nspire using an arduino I guess TI might be a bit less lenient than when the same thing happens when using this TI thing.
