HP releases hackable ARM based calculator

Hardware Hacking 1

mikeselectricstuff writes "HP's 20b business consultant calculator isn't the sort of thing that would normally interest the avarage Slashdotter, except that HP have released a Devkit for it, including schematics and source for a sample application, and appear to be actively encouraging people to re-purpose it. Maybe the engineers thought a business calculator was just too boring for their hardware? The calculator is based on an Atmel ARM chip, and has a bootloader and JTAG interface to allow user applications to be written and downloaded, turning a boring calculator into anything you can do within the constraints of the hardware.
