There was a time when being an engineering student meant you had a sword. Well, really it was a slide rule hanging from your belt, but it sounds cooler to call it a sword. The slide rule sword gave way to calculators hanging from your belt loop, and for many engineers that calculator was from HP. Today’s students are more likely to have a TI or Casio calculator, but HP is still in there with the HP Prime. It is hard to call it a calculator since the latest variant has a 528 MHz ARM Cortex A7, 256 MB of RAM, and 512 MB of ROM. But if you can’t justify a $150 calculator, there are some cheap and even free options out there to get the experience. To start with, HP has a free app that runs on Windows or Mac that works just like the calculator. Of course, that’s free as in no charge, not free as in open source. But still, it will run under Wine with no more than the usual amount of coaxing.

You might wonder why you need a calculator on your computer, and perhaps you don’t. However, the HP Prime isn’t just your 1980s vintage calculator. It also has an amazing number of applications including a complete symbolic math system based on xCAS/Giac. It is also programmable using a special HP language that is sort of like Basic or Pascal. Other applications include plotting, statistics, solvers, and even a spreadsheet that can hold up to 10,000 rows and 676 columns.


It is easy to think that HP provides the free PC software so you’ll go out and buy the real calculator, and that may be part of it. However, you can also get official apps for Android and iOS. They aren’t free, but they are relatively inexpensive. On iOS the cost right now is $25 and on Android it is $20. There are also “lite” versions that are free.

It appears that these apps are not emulating the genuine calculator hardware, but are ports of the calculator code. So this isn’t a case of someone just writing a pretend calculator, these apps act like the real calculator because it is running the same source code. For example, there is an application, HP Connectivity Kit, that lets you talk to a real calculator over the network. The PC and phone versions will also connect just like a real device.


You can write programs on the device or if you have the HP Connectivity software (also free) you can write programs on your PC. You can even find some from the Internet. If you miss your old calculator, there is a define feature that lets you program like a key macro recording.

The programming language isn’t hard to pick up. Here’s a short snippet:

LOCAL N1, N2, L1;
CHOOSE(N1, "Area or Volume?", "Area", "Volume");
IF N1 == 1 THEN
CHOOSE(N2, "Choose shape", "Rectangle", "Triangle", "Disk");
CHOOSE(N2, "Choose solid", "Prism", "Cylinder", "Cone", "Pyramid", "Sphere");
. . .

Hacking and What’s Next?

You’d think that the real hardware would be a prime platform for hacking, but so far that’s still on the to-do list. The only really good hardware hack for the real calculator adds a Samsung battery with a higher capacity to the machine. There are also some enticing pads on the PCB that appear to support a buzzer and I2C communications, but there’s no firmware for it. There have been a few attempts to load alien firmware into the device, but there’s no full-blown development system. Getting to the JTAG port looks pretty intense. There’s also been the inevitable hacking of the communication protocol.

History is replete with products that seemed amazing for their day but turned out to be just a stopgap for something better. Cassettes gave way to CDs and then CDs gave way to digital music. Telephone answering machines gave way to voicemail. Calculators have that feel to them. How much longer will we need them? Are the virtual HP Prime applications going to overshadow the physical device?

Regardless, the Prime is state of the art and would shame a personal computer from a few years ago. You can only wonder if it will be the last great calculator, or if there are more yet to come. And a calculator still makes a nice project. Not all homemade calculators are simple.

Killexams : HP launches HP Anyware for secure remote working

HP Anyware will be available somewhere in the coming months. The solution’s based on technology from Teradici, which HP acquired last year. HP Anyware should eventually replace HP’s existing zCentral Remote Boost solution.

Teradici is a cornerstone of the upcoming solution. The company provides virtual desktop environments using Cloud Access Software (CAS), allowing companies to remotely host PCs in their on-premises environment and the cloud.

Teradici uses its own PC-over-IP (PCoIP) protocol. The protocol streams the contents of a display. The data travelling over a network is unlike the data exchanged by traditional remote desktop tech, which promotes security.

HP Anyware is the next release of Teradici’s CAS solution. New functionality includes support for Arm-based M1 processors and Macs. In addition, HP and Teradici optimized the tool for Windows 11.

HP told The Register that HP Anyware will replace zCentral Remote Boost, HP’s existing solution for remote work. HP Anyware will have equivalent functionality by mid-2023, after which zCentral Remote is to be discontinued. Though the solution will receive security fixes for some time, users eventually have to migrate to Anyware.

Killexams : The Flight That Made The Calculator And Changed The World

It was the fall of 1965 and Jack Kilby and Patrick Haggerty of Texas Instruments sat on a flight as Haggerty explained his idea for a calculator that could fit in the palm of a hand. This was a huge challenge since at that time calculators were the size of typewriters and plugged into wall sockets for their power. Kilby, who’d co-invented the integrated circuit just seven years earlier while at TI, lived to solve problems.

By the time they landed, Kilby had decided they should come up with a calculator that could fit in your pocket, cost less than $100, and could add, subtract, multiply, divide and maybe do square roots. He chose the code name, Project Cal Tech, for this endeavor, which seemed logical as TI had previously had a Project MIT.

Rather than study how existing calculators worked, they decided to start from scratch. The task was broken into five parts: the keyboard, the memory, the processor, the power supply, and some form of output. The processing portion came down to a four-chip design, one more than was initially hoped for. The output was also tricky for the time. CRTs were out of the question, neon lights required too high a voltage and LEDs were still not bright enough. In the end, they developed a thermal printer that burned images into heat-sensitive paper.

Just over twelve months later, with the parts all spread out on a table, it quietly spat out correct answers. A patent application was filed resulting in US patent 3,819,921, Miniature electronic calculator, which outlined the basic design for all the calculators to follow. This, idea borne of a discussion on an airplane, was a pivotal moment that changed the way we teach every student, and brought the power of solid-state computing technology into everyday life.

TI showed the Cal Tech prototype to a number of companies and Canon took an interest. Canon brought it to market as the Pocketronic, releasing it in Japan in October 1970 and the US in April 1971, selling for around $150 ($910 in 2017 dollars). It had three chips and a heat-sensitive paper tape readout. It was still just handheld though, not really pocket-sized, but sold very well.

By then a number of other handheld calculators were also hitting the market. In November 1970, the first calculator-on-a-chip, the Mostek MK6010, was announced, followed in February 1971 by the first truly pocket-sized calculator, the Busicom LE-120A “Handy” that used the chip. That same year, TI followed with their own calculator-on-a-chip and in 1972 TI started releasing its own calculators.

HP-35, the first scientific calculator
HP-35, the first scientific calculator, by Seth Morabito CC BY 2.0

In 1972 Hewlett-Packard released the HP-35, the first scientific calculator, one that could replace a slide rule. It used reverse Polish notation (which our own [Jenny List] recently wrote about), included scientific notation and had 35 buttons, hence its name. Despite a $395 price tag ($2,320 in 2017), 100,000 were sold in its first year. The HP-35, along with the release of TI’s equivalent SR-50 in 1974 for $150, spelled the end of the genuine slide rule. (The SR stood for Slide Rule.)

Display technology also advanced through vacuum fluorescent displays, LEDs and LCDs. In the mid-1970s, twisted nematic (TN) LCDs gave calculators the now omnipresent dark numerals on a light background while decreasing the power requirements to the point where they could run on button cells.

Prices dropped as new features were added and sales doubled each year. By 1976, a four-function calculator cost only a few dollars. In 1972, 5 million calculators were sold in the US and within ten years there were more calculators in the US than people.

Why had the calculator become so popular? This was a clear case of a consumer product that was conceived for a market that wasn’t known to exist. When Haggerty conceived of the idea in 1965, calculators were heavy and took up significant space on a desktop, so perhaps the convenience of one which you could carry around played a part. They also needed no setup, no programming — simply flip the on/off switch and do some calculations. For the average person, they replaced the need to learn multiplication tables, necessary for working out how much a dozen apples would cost at $0.05 an apple. They also made it easier for the high school student to do the trigonometry in their physics homework. Though, in the early 1970s, given the initial high price, perhaps it was engineers and companies that bought them first.

TI-30, by D. Meyer CC BY-SA 3.0

I can attest to the latter. I was just becoming a teenager back around 1976 when my father bought a TI-30 calculator for $25, or around $107 in 2017 dollars. The mining company at which he worked as an electrician had made them available. Before that, I recall using long division to divide up a long sheet of paper for a mural that was to be a backdrop for a school play. I would likely have gone on to learn to use a slide rule, but never did. After the calculator arrived, I’ve done long division on paper only once when no calculator was available, though I have done it for fun and to see if I remember how.

TI-81 graphing calculator

Through the decades that followed, calculators continued to gain functionality. In 1974, HP came out with their first programmable calculator, the HP-65. It had 100 functions and stored programs with a magnetic card reader. Starting in 1978, a company called Calculated Industries released very niche calculators such as the Loan Arranger for the Real Estate industry with functions for calculating payments and future values. Then later came the Construction Master with programmed functions for pitch, rise, run, feet-inch conversions and more. In the 1990s TI came out with the TI-81, a popular graphing calculator for algebra and precalculus courses and power by a Zilog Z80.

If memory serves, it was a programmable Sharp El-5040 with a single line formula display that I’d left behind in a University auditorium, hopefully having found a good home on an engineer’s desk. Now, my Sharp EL-531W, also with a single line formula that can be retrieved and edited, sits ever-present beside my computer monitor, getting daily use while a Casio fx-3600P that I’d thought I’d lost but later found, sits waiting for its turn in my desk drawer.

This being Hackaday, you no doubt have a calculator that gets frequent use. Or perhaps you have your own fond memories of one that got away or a family one that you grew up with. Or perhaps there’s one you’ve hacked, like this ESP8266-connected scientific calculator? Share your stories with us, we’d love to hear how the calculator has played a part in your life. We also wonder how much longer the calculator as a distinct piece of electronics will survive now that the infinite adaptability of smartphones has made calculator apps the go-to for today’s upcoming engineering candidates?

Killexams : Post-pandemic printer pains
Shaun Hattingh, Datacentrix.

Shaun Hattingh, Datacentrix.

The pandemic had a massive impact on the printing business and on the business of printing. Millions of suddenly remote workers experienced a seismic shift from traditional print-based processes to digital ways of working, with printers losing significant commercial ground. IDC revealed that print volumes had dropped by nearly 14% in 2020, with the likelihood of this decline continuing as more companies adopt hybrid and remote working practices alongside paperless initiatives. Statista’s research reflects a somewhat similar trend with an uptick in printer sales in 2021 and 2022 followed by a dip in 2025.

These sentiments are shared by Forrester which, in its US Tech Market Outlook by Category for 2021 and 2022, found that the spend on peripherals will continue its slow growth in 2022 after a spike in 2020 and 2021 as companies invested into home office technology to keep employees and businesses going during the pandemic. Now, as the new normal blends both work and office, many companies are wondering if printers are perhaps as necessary an evil as they previously thought. Are the costs on ink, paper and device maintenance really worth it when digital can pretty much do everything, only faster?

According to a study undertaken by Konica Minolta and BPO Media, around 75% of respondents across consumers and businesses felt that a printer was somewhat important. This sentiment was echoed in another study by the Imaging Channel, which found 31% of people were copying and printing more than in the past. The printer isn’t dead; just like the PC, it’s simply going through a phase. What is interesting, however, is that even with declining printer purchase volumes, companies are experiencing soaring printer costs. According to an Epson survey, this is because the majority of employees (70%) were buying the wrong types of printers, which resulted in the business carrying the cost. This has seen an increase in managed print services that are now evolving to meet changing workplace and workforce expectations.

In South Africa, there also remains a cultural and administrative reliance on paper. Here, printing isn’t so much an obsolete practice as it is a mandatory part of life. In triplicate. Paperless is a distant reality for organisations looking to onboard suppliers and manage finance teams and ensure that systems are compliant. It is equally far in the future for financial institutions that rely on paper to ensure that RICA and FICA are obeyed. This is further complicated by the fact that a large percentage of the population is not digital or even close to becoming digitised, and this is not just a local concern. It’s a global one. According to the International Telecommunication Union, in 2021, around 37% of the world’s population had not used the internet. The correlation to the printer isn’t tenuous – it means that printers remain one of the lowest barriers to entry for a vast percentage of the population that’s seeking to engage with the organisation.

Printers and printing solutions are evolving to meet changing business and consumer expectations and will very likely loom dark and large in office corners for some time to come.

Printing trends in2022.

Brainstorm: What are some of thebiggest printer trends right now?

Caron de Fortier, manager, HP printers and supplies, Drive Control Corporation: Cloud-based managed print services have emerged as a major differentiator, with many organisations opting to partner with experts that manage their printer fleets remotely and offer benefits such as cost-per-page models.

Lee-Anne Letcher, product manager, CIG Marketing, Canon Southern Africa: Businesses can print their own flyers, posters, and point of sale because of the printers available to them. Another trend is to have printing devices that are efficient, with cost management features. Functions like skip blank pages, energy-saving capabilities, enforcing print principles (departmental printing), duplex scanning, fast first-time page, low energy modes and print preview before printing are all features that can make the businesses more efficient while bringing down their cost of printing.

Hilton McCall, head of Graphic Communications, Ricoh South Africa: There’s a growing need to manage more jobs with lower run lengths and better integration with digital communication and better workflow automation. These are designed to Strengthen printing operations while pursuing more efficient energy use. The shortage of skilled workers, particularly with inkjet experience, remains a challenge.

Shaun Hattingh, operations manager, Datacentrix: We’re still seeing a significant requirement for printing within the mining sector specifically; this arena continues to focus on hard copy documentation and more manual processing due to the nature of the environment within a mine. The medical industry also, to a point, still has a requirement for physical documentation.

Brainstorm: What kind of printing is dominating the business environment and how is this evolving?

Tamzin Gray, senior sales manager, Epson SA: According to the Printing Industry in South Africa 2021 report, the pandemic caused an increased demand for packaging due to the growth in online sales and greater demand for digital printing. In addition, there’s been an increased focus on sustainable printing in the business environment, due to hybrid and flexible working models. Energy usage is still a key challenge in the industry. Although 95% of organisations monitor their printer fleet’s energy consumption, only 35% have a clear view. There is, however, a strong desire in the business sector to understand more about the savings they could make by changing their print fleet management and by changing the types of printers in use.

Hilton McCall, Ricoh South Africa: The pandemic and worldwide lockdowns negatively impacted many printed application volumes. But sales of physical books remained strong and even increased across Europe and several other regions in 2021. Book printing remains a powerful business driver in the corporate market.

Nick East, sales director, Itec South Africa: Smart printing is dominating the business environment, resulting in savings on paper and other resources. Sensors in printers can send signals to indicate the need for machine maintenance or toner replacement, which is highly effective in reducing customer downtime. AI can also help reroute printing jobs automatically to another printer. Combining IoT with AI-enabled services can deliver more personalised solutions, predict paper usage, send alerts on possible breaches, and transform the printing environment into an efficient and highly reliable one.

Brainstorm: What technologies and solutions are shaping this market?

Lee-Anne Letcher, Canon Southern Africa: Digitalising documents makes the document more versatile and gives the business so many more options. It’s also no surprise the energy efficiency of the devices is top of mind, things like adaptable standby modes and timing, automatically turning the device off at certain times, like close of business.

Hilton McCall, Ricoh South Africa: There are many. These include: hybrid mail software, UV flatbeds, new scanner options for high-speed inkjet platforms, new workflow automations, and continued innovations for added colour stations, substrates, and others in direct-to-garment, latex large format, large format, wide format, and inkjet devices.

Mohammed Vachiat, head of Sales and Innovation, Konica Minolta South Africa: There’s a big move in favour of cloud computing, IoT, with the multi-functional device becoming commoditised in the process. Another shift is towards more robust security. In a secure environment, such as the printing of confidential or classified information, like exam papers, for example, the organisation’s ICT framework has to work hand-in-hand with the printer security features of the multifunctional devices in order to bring about complete peace of mind.

Clearing space for point of sale

How Cape Union Mart refined its payments and customer interactions by investing in printers that fit the space and the need.

Cape Union Mart, a one-stop destination for outdoor enthusiasts, travellers and explorers, is a well-known retailer with a solid outlet footprint across the country. The company required a mobile point of sale (POS) solution that was capable of working offline when there were power or network issues, and that could handle printing to very specific retailer expectations, speeds and standards. The company didn’t want customers to endure long queues and delays, particularly during power failures, while waiting to pay.

“Our mobile POS solution allowed us to introduce flexible instore payments that are faster and easier for our customers,” says Faizel Govender, IT Store Infrastructure and Systems Support coordinator at Cape Union Mart.“Then, because our customers still want physical receipts to ensure they can easily exchange or refund their merchandise, if necessary, we introduced the Epson TM-m3011 range of printers to the POS system.”

Printing isn’t so much an obsolete practice as it is a mandatory part of life. In triplicate.

The company opted for the printer range because they were small and compact and could use the same rolls of paper that were already instore. They added one to every store, giving customers the option to print the invoice if they didn’t want it emailed. In addition, the platform allows for the retail chain to use Bluetooth printing, which made it a lot easier for the team to manage POS printing across multiple mobile devices. “We opted to use the Epson series of printers because they work on most platforms and are easy to use and setup,” says Govender. “It’s a versatile printing platform and the setup process is genuinely easy to manage across different stores and devices. The company uses the TM-T70 series instore on the FEC POS terminals and the TM-m3011 printers on the mobile devices with the goal of using them on the new FEC devices that are to be introduced in the future.”

Improved store aesthetics

The company has been with Epson for a while as the printers not only tick the boxes of ease of use and reliability, but also meet its need for speed. As Govender points out, customers don’t like waiting, so slow printers are a hard no for the stores.

“We want to eliminate long lines so having these devices installed across the stores has meant that we’ve sped up the process by more than 50% because they print at speeds of up to 250mm per second,” he adds. “Plus, the colour is an important factor. These printers are black so they can be hidden better for improved store aesthetics and provide a sleeker look and feel. We also like the idea of using the white Epson printers in its Poetry stores as the colours would work well in that environment. Finally, another bonus is that these printers are smaller than older designs, so they free up real estate at the POS station.”

The printer range is compact and cube-shaped, so it allows for the retail firm to free up valuable counter space while fitting in with the aesthetics. The printers also come with a paper-saving function and near-end sensor so that employees can rapidly change the paper without impacting on queue times or efficiencies. The other advantage for the Cape Union Mart stores is that the connection with the mobile POS devices means that customers could retain social distancing regulations during the pandemic, and now are not constrained to stand in the check-out point queues.

“The printer range proved to be the perfect fit for our stores, and we’ve saved on maintenance and replacement costs because the devices are hardly ever faulty; they just keep working,” says Govender. “In the next couple of months, we will be rolling out the latest versions of the FEC devices to Strengthen efficiencies and we’re going to move the TM30s over to these devices instead of the TM70s so we can have faster results and constantly evolve our customer service and efficiencies.”
