BluCalc

Stretching the limits of Arduino with an Arduino Duemilanove Graphing Calculator.

Similar projects worth following
After losing my expensive graphing calculator that was pretty much required for my AP Calculus BC class, I decided that something needed to be done about the extreme prices of the Graphing Calculators on the market. Many of these calculators, while great in many ways (I love my TI-84), are many times over powered as well as large and expensive. With a few design tweeks, I realized I could make a minimalist Arduino-based graphing calculator with cost under $40. After a few design criteria for a minimalist graphing calculator, I have begun to create this.

It has trig functions, basic graphing capability, square and other roots, positive and negative numbers, decimals, e, pi, and parentheses. It is a fully functional scientific calculator with graphing capability.

I plan on adding in table functionality in the future as well, but I want to get it working first.

I love the choice of platform. When put together,  the Arduino + Seeed Touch screen LCD are very versatile. I have personally created a cellphone (with a GPRS Shield), an Enigma Machine Simulator, and a port of one pixel Pac-Man with this platform.

Great start! I can't wait to see where you go with this. How do you plan to do trig on it?

If you're asking where they are, then it's the sn, cn, and tn buttons. If you're asking how would I actually do the trig, then I figured there was a library for it somewhere online.
