HP Prime: What would be cool



#2

It would be really cool if in a future update you could use a USB OTG cable to connect and use a USB keyboard to the calculator. I tried it and the diagnostics detect a device, but alas not the calculator software itself.

I would like to be able to connect it to a Vernier Technologies LabPro interface.
Someone actually connected a HP48 to the Vernier ULI interface(1997) a much earlier interface manufactured by Vernier.
Most of the old sensors work with the LabPro and Vernier has come out with a lot more sensors since the days of the ULI.

What would also be cool would be the ability to connect an external SD card reader in much the same way I can do this with my iPad Mini. This would allow me to back up programs and data directly to the SD card, instead of my pc via the connectivity kit.

If I interpret the wireless interface correctly and the datasheet of the Samsung processor in the prime, the machine has On-The-Go USB functionality. It should be possible to connect a wireless wifi dongle or an FTDI 232 chip.

It would be great if a TCP/IP stack would be included or some other means to connect (cheaply) to the outside world.

Regards,

Eelco

I'd like to see a printer for the Prime. I know it doesn't have infra-red but maybe a USB printer of some sort....
