I saw a topic on TI-Planet https://tiplanet.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=17473 and I thought it would be interesting to see what people here would like as a new graphing calculator, what they expect the next TI/Casio/HP calculator to be, in terms of technical specs (eg processor name, speed, RAM, flash, etc). Make sure to be somewhat realistic, though, perhaps basing yourself on past TI calculator releases or smartphone attempts at dabbling into calculators (eg Lexibook).
I would say my dream calc would not really be a calc but for the Prime to have the community that the ti-84+ has/had.
I would need a gpu chip. You know... so i can make a fbo particle system...
My dream calculator, eh?The hardware would definitely be on par with current phones, ARM chip clocked at around a gigahertz and a good GPU so it could support an UI as polished as Android, maybe even Android itself, with fancy 2D and 3D plotting apps, a powerful CAS allowing computation power akin to Mathematica and Maple, Lua programming maybe, but the option of making your own apps should be important. Touch screen too, to easily move through the plots.Yeah, probably an Android phone with a calc keyboard more aimed at education. iPads and tablets are more and more used in schools for teaching, why not developing calcs with similar hardware and software? TI did iOS and Android apps for education, that's a good start, HP could definitely do something like that as well.In short, stop making severely underpowered calcs and start doing calcs that actually have powerful computing power like the CASes sold for PC.
I would love a TI84+ with the power of a TI nspire...Or maybe the power of a computer
Perhaps an Nspire with the built-in Wolfram/Alpha CAS engine and an Skylake Intel Core i7 chip with 32 GB RAM ? * STV runs far, far away
