TI-84+ gets down with USB peripherals


I realize this is somewhat old news, but after sitting around Calculus class playing with my TI-84 Plus graphing calculator, I decided to look around to see what has been hacked onto these things. I thought for sure some tiny distro of linux has been ported to it. I stumbled upon an open-source project called usb8x. This is very cool.

“Ever since Texas Instruments added a USB link port to the TI-84 line, people have been trying to write drivers for almost any device. Here’s an example of a Lexar Jumpdrive playing a black-and-white short – it’s the lobby scene from The Matrix! Check out the article’s comments for users’ takes on this development.”
