    Alright, I'm looking for any information (name, datasheet, concept, IEEE publications, etc) on the display used on the 50-series of Texas Instruments programmable calculator.

    REF: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TI-58

    It appears to be a resin globe with 'filaments' in the shape of a modern seven segment display and including extra digits. I don't remember exactly how many there are total but I think it's actually an 11 segment display (4 extra on the diagonals)

    Does anyone have any idea what these are?

    Regards,
    Ben

    Yes, I'm actually looking for any information on this specific type of display as I have some similar parts in a pile of scrap I just picked up and I think they would look pretty spiffy on my wrist.

    Anyone else have any idea what these are?
