TI-80 Emulator Released
Posted by Ryan on 14 October 2011, 03:27 GMT

The calculator community has been abuzz today with the release of a TI-80 emulator by none other than Randy "Mr. Z" Compton. If you have not been keeping up with the dramatic unfolding of this story, the important thing to know is that the TI-80 has historically been a very difficult mystery to solve in terms of its ROM paired with a proprietary processor. After a truly incredible amount of work on what could easily be argued to be an unspeakably arduous task, Randy has not only released what he calls this "not ready for prime time" software, but documentation to accompany it. Honestly, Randy's contributions have fallen nothing short of remarkable. His efforts are yet another testament to the ingenuity, talent, and dedication that can be found in the TI calculator community.
