Full Version: N eed good HP-67 picture
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.

I am looking for a good picture of an HP-67. I am writing a Windows emulator in Visual Basic 6. The emulator uses a picture of an HP-67 and tracks where on the image a person clicks the mouse. It's not an easy task to emulate the calculator in run and program modes, but I am willing to give it a try. I appreciate if you can "donate" a picture for the project. Email me your hp-67 picture to hpticalcfan@aol.com. Thanks!

Hi,

you could ask Dave Hicks, the curator of this site.
Chances are good that he has a very good picture of an HP-67 (in both meanings;-)

Raymond

Thanks Raymond. The picture of the HP-67 in this web site is nice, but it includes the picture of a magnetic card!! I looked on the web for a similar picture WITHOUT the card, but did not find as one that was as good.

Thanks

Namir

Do you have a 67? If so you may try to scan it with a flat bed scanner. I found scanning give a good picture for your application.

Chan,

I don't have an HP-67 right now. I'd like to buy one, so I am watching eBay auctions.

Thanks!

Namir

PS: I am gradually implimenting the emulator ... boy!! So many things to keep track of. Th eHP-67 is one heck of a state engine!!!!

Namir,

Here's a start:

It needs a little more cleaning up.

Great pic Katie! Any other classics at that resolution??

Gordon,

It's just a scan of a 67 at 600x600 with a little photoshop-like cleanup done to it. Are you looking for any other ones in particular? I'll be happy to scan them for you.

-Katie

Hey, Katie! Scan ALL the models you have!! THNX, VPN

Katie,

A million thanks! This one hits the jackpot. Borrowing from a popular saying by a dictator currently in hiding, I can say your picture is "the mother of all HP=67 pictures!".

Regards,

Namir

Do you have a good HP-34C or 33C you can scan?

Thanks.

Hi Namir,


Great Project! Will you make a real emulator (requiring a ROM image of a 67?)--or will you have to simulate (i.e. write your own native code which mimics the functionalitry).


It will be really cool--a real classic on the desktop--will make a great trio---v41, emu48, and Namir67!

Good luck with the project.

And Katie's scan looks excellent, too.


Regards,


Bill

How about a scan of the hp 49g+ & hp 48gII, if not yet available, I settle for HP-71B & HP-75C. Thank You, Katie!

Katie,

You are spoiling me with all these pictures that cry out to be animated with an emulator!!!!!!!

For your most kind efforts I will email you the HP-67 emulator for beta testing. I am still alpha testing and finding crazy bugs here and there. Overall it works and seems to be taking programs!! I am trying to stick to specs as much as possible. It's very tempting (and basically effortless) to add more stack/memory registers and program memory ... maybe that will be for a special souped up emulator ... the HP-67X emulator!

Funny thing, now that I have an emulator my desire to actually buy a physical HP-67 has died out a bit (ok ok I have 2 HP-97 sitting here :-) )

Sorry no 49G+, 48GII, nor 33S pictures yet. But here are the 75C and 71B scans:

Gee - Thanx! What else can you scan, Katie? Bring them all in one bunch of links - take you time until your total collections is scanned. Borrow from friends and/or calc stores to add more. I can't have enough od these!

I have a HP-6S Solar, HP-10B, HP-16C, HP-17B, HP-17BII, hp 17bII+, HP-19BII, HP-25, HP-28S*2, HP-32S, HP-32SII*2, HP 39/40G dualmode, HP-41CX*2, HP-42S, HP 48SX*2, HP 48GX*2, hp 48gII, HP 49G*2, hp 49g+, HP-71B*2, HP-75C, HP-700LX Omnigo+Nokia2110i, HP 720 Jornada AND I'm darely missing the HP-34C & HP-15C (never mind the HP-11C, HP-41CV adjustable speed [self-made], HP-41C) and the HP-200LX

Hi Bill,

I am writing a "simulator" in VB6. It's fun and challenging!!

Namir

Katie,

I chekced out your web site. I bow in humility in homage to you state of excellent collectorhood. I have a china hutch that is crawling with calculators too, but they are not as well laid as your machines!!

I am very impressed. What do you do for a living?

Namir

I'm not quite sure what the fascination is with the scans of these calculators. Although they're pretty high resolution I don't think that they're as nice looking as the pictures that Dave has on this site. A scan is a nice way of photographing a calculator for use in an emulator/simulator, but otherwise it doesn't really give you as good a feel for what it looks like as do Dave's 3/4 pictures, for example.

The sideview pictures are excellent to look but are virtually useless for an emulator since I am imposing text box controls over the picture of the LCD to emulate teh display.
