WP-34s data exchange with PC over IR



#2

From a hardware standpoint, would it be feasible to exchange data between a PC and a WP-34S using the IR and something like this:

IrDA adapter

or this?

IR to Bluetooth adapter

And, if it is feasible from a hardware standpoint, would it be feasible from a software standpoint?

It would be pretty cool to not have to deal with a cable.

What speaks against a cable for a mobile coin cell powered device? Instead of blowing electromagnetic radiation in a cone wasting some 99% of it, it's focussed electron to electron communication - far more effective IMHO. Employing Harald's USB board you can use really cool micro USB stuff ...

Seriously, we'd need a return channel for bidirectional IR communication which we don't have.

Might as well print to a 82240B and OCR the result :)

Ok. I admit it was a silly idea.

Maybe my quest to rid my desk of cables will be satisfied by building myself a Lego robot that'll just punch things into the calculator for me. With the right software, it could work on any calculator!

Something like this: Lego typing
