@martijnbraam some of the interns must've had a lot of fun with these 😂

@martijnbraam Oh, that kind of thing's been in TI documents dating back to at least the 1980s back when they were in the math textbook game.


Not quite the level of the #HP-75 design specification though. That was legendary.

Just search for “#kangaroo” “#roo-man” and similar.

And amongst the authors I recognise at least one #HP48 design engineer.

@martijnbraam Haha I just stumbled upon that a few days ago as well :)
