"From a Geek comedy show idea to an actual application. AMAZING!"
- Thor Lising
Watching The Big Bang Theory season 4 episode 12, there is a scene where Leonard (played by Johnny Galecki) is talking about his idea of building a smartphone app that will easily computes mathematical equations. Here's the scene from The Big Bang Theory aired January 6, 2011:
The idea is to create an app that will use handwriting recognition and run to a symbolic evaluation engine to determine mathematical symbols. Great idea!
More than a year passed, an actual application was build with this "same" idea. Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 introduces formula match with the use of handwriting and S-Pen technology. Below is a sample video of how the formula matching works:
Amazing isn't it?!
P.S. - This is not a paid advertisement. Just amazed of the fact that there is an actual app "coming" from a geek comedy show idea. :)
