Gossamer: A Web Browser For Your Graphing Calculator

If you thought being able to play Drugwars on your trusty hand-me-down Texas Instruments TI-83 graphing calculator was cool, well, you're right—that was, like, the coolest thing ever when we were in high school—but a new web browser called Gossamer may have the weight-moving game beat. 

Developed by NYU PhD student, Christopher "Kerm Martian" Mitchell, Gossamer can run the TI-83+ through the TI-84+SE graphing calculators and displays the text of any website in pixelated black and white. Seeing as how most students now-a-days have at least two gadgets that are constantly connected to the Internet, we're not sure who will use this, but still, you got to admire the work that went into this project.
