Is that a chameleon calculator? No, just a TI-83+ running on TI-73 hardware.allynfolksjr
Brandon Wilson released today a utility called Chameleon which allows a user to run a TI-83+ Operating System on a TI-73. This effectively turns the TI-73 into a 83+. They essentially have the same hardware, and using tools one can easily modify the 83+ OS to work on the 73.

The process is not particularly easy, but the instructions are straightforward and quite clear. Just a note that unless you also own a TI-83+, this probably isn't legal to do.

Very cool, Brandon!

For people, this is a video of its awesomeness.

That's actually really old, but same idea, yes.

I updated the version on this. It's now far more stable since I fixed some significant bugs, so if you have an old 73 you never use and you wish you had another 83+, this'll give it to you.
