just wanted to learn from scratch a programmable calculator, just as I did *several* years ago, with a ti-59.
Anyway it started as a cool terminal to be used to setup a minisumo robot on the dojo. I don't want to use a laptop, there are a lot of people around and actually *nobody* knows the 41 around the people I know (within my same age).
Now, the more I dig, the more I would like to do.
At first, I will try to drive my robot using a HPIL->RS232 interface, then maybe a home made HPIL->GPIO or a HPIL->RS232, but the smallest possible.
Another interesting project would it be using a pic to emulate some rom, I have found an interesting kit that is able to read files from a FAT32 SD card, using a pic.
I don't have any software to preserve, so my point of view is VERY different from most, if not all of you. Maybe others would build something very different.
Who knows, I am still missing the CX "basic" manuals...go figure. there is no guarantee that I will go much further than 2 ENTER 2 + stuff.
