Hi, Pal,

you are simply great! And fast! Only one small point: Please give the orange m-key the normal shape (i.e. like the other keys). IMO we can save a separate mold because we have an elevated edge next to it.

Best regards,

Walter

No problem. At one point I had a normal shape key in there, but suddenly remembered your rendering (and my 12c) have that square-ish key in there. I will replace it today.

Cheers,

Hi, Paul;

simply working with 3D software is nothing when mastering a good feel for things, inovative thinking and subject perception. Not all guys that know how to use a 3D software can generate such images. And the ornaments slightly suggest X-mas to come...

Cheers. And congrats! Gave me something else to wish for...

Thank you for your kind words, Luiz. I am my most serious critic. For example, Walter suggested the red key (on the end) be converted to a standard chamfered key. This is good, because I thought my ON button looks too square compared to the real one. I was going to redo that button, but now I don't have to :)

Cheers,
Pal

Here we go..


I don't know how soon I can get to the next model. Life is piling up a bit...

Enjoy,
Pal

I like it. Actually, I really like it. With a high-definition,
backlit screen similar to today's PDAs, and of course some
means of I/O (micro-SD?) this could be a very usable machine.
The key placement you chose seems very ergonomic, too -- finger
travel is minimal for frequent operations, and the keyboard
is optimized for basic calculator functions. It reminds me of
the HP 32Sii in that way (still my favorite HP calc).

A few questions/remarks...

1. Is it the same size as a classic Voyager?

2. How do the menus work? It doesn't look like the
keys under the screen can be used to select items,
so does a menu window appear on the screen with
options like "1 -- nCr 2 -- nPr", etc.?

3. It is lacking the alphabetic labels (except for A-F,
but I guess those are for hexadecimal entry).

Hi, Paul,

thanks for your kind words. Here are some answers to your questions:

Yes, exactly.

You're right. Personally, I like softkeys better (please see HP-15CX), but I could not get softkeys *and* a 40G-LCD into a Voyager.

You are right again. Alpha labels may be added easily but would increase the clutter on the keyplate, so I chose a menu-based access as in the 42S. Nevertheless, you are free to use ASN for customizing e.g. your alpha keyboard, and you may SAVE the custom keyboard in a status variable for later recalling.

Best regards, Walter
