Looking forward to launching a programme to connect Casio calculator enthusiasts around the world.

Posté le 13/02/2024 15:42

As we know, calculators are actually in decline in countries all over the world. Most students sell them on the second-hand market after completing their SATs or other college entrance exams. This is actually what many non-calculator enthusiasts have always done. And again, we know that many developers in the world are currently focusing on developing open source handhelds. The craze for open source handhelds got me thinking about where else a calculator can go as a computing tool after you take a test or even after you graduate.
Why don't we make the cheap and easy to use Casio calculator into an open source handheld?
We currently have a very complete development kit and a community of enthusiasts who are passionate about development. So here is my initiative:
1: Form a team of developers.
2: Implement an engine that can support the development of 2d and 3d games, like pico-8, which can facilitate even people who don't have access to the calculator sdk to complete a game by simple operation and mouse drawing bitmap.

I believe that the low price and the reason of easy development are enough to make Casio calculator hot among non-hobbyist groups, and Casio calculator with enough market can be brilliant again.

Ooh I love the idea! I think more support for existing stuff like GameBoy emulation, PICO-8 etc. would bring a lot.

A prototype of a 2D engine and a 3D engine under development.

Excellent idea you have here! And by the way, I might be able to help a bit .
Good luck!

I think what's important is an open source, easy-to-develop platform. I don’t know if you know about Playdate, an open source handheld console. They have made Playdate continue to attract attention through open source and complete SDK and open game market.

And I think screen resolution is the biggest obstacle holding back emulators. This may fundamentally make the calculator unsuitable for emulation of any other gaming platform. So I was thinking: How about making my own original engine suitable for calculators? To perfectly adapt to the resolution of 128*64.

That's reasonable, though I imagine not many people will instantly want to spend time writing code for a custom platform whose support and audience is minimal. Hence the drive to first show some level of interoperability. I do agree that screen size is a problem, 396x224 on the fx-CG is decent but 128x64 doesn't do much for you.

fx-cg may not be cheap in terms of price, so I am thinking about supported models. This is a big project. My friend has already completed the development project of classpad 300. Here are some pictures:

Ok ok, juicy! So before we start throwing all of our ideas in the mix do you want to take some time to establish what you've done so far and what your vision is in more detail?

It may just be an idea at the moment, and many, many friends need to join in to discuss the entire plan. Need a discord channel? Or any other platform that facilitates real-time communication.

Personally, I'd rather stay here; the larger the plan the stronger the need to be organized. Also for instance I'm at work right now so I can't tune in. And it's a lot easier to catch up on a few dozen thought-out posts than on hundreds of instant messages.

That's true, Discussion in the forum is indeed a good choice. Maybe I need to sort out my thoughts. I also need more advice from experienced friends.
