Cool: Nokia Handwriting Calculator

Nokia Handwriting Calculator: Definitely beta.

Nokia Handwriting Calculator: Definitely beta.

Definitely one of the more interesting products to come out of the Beta Labs as of late, the Nokia Handwriting Calculator evaluates written mathematical expressions. So you could write out a simple 2 + 2 and click the calculate button, and you’d get the correct answer of 4. Or you could write some crazy, mixed-up expressions, add some happy faces, and completely break the program.

There’s three versions of the Handwriting Calculator – one for S60 Touch-screen devices, another for internet tablets like the N810/N800, and finally a PC version. Unfortunately, since I no longer have my N800, I can only vouch for the latter. And while using the mouse produces some lousy results, the character recognition in the PC application is definitely spotty.

After entering an expression, you can also choose to help the project team by sending in your handwriting samples.

While it’s fun to play around with, there isn’t a whole lot of practical use to it, unless your idea of fun is solving quadratic equations in your spare time.
