Wow, people still use calculators? I thought that sort of thing was handled by mobile phones or PC apps now. I use an abacus, obviously. Anyway, the Lexon Roswell calculator is almost enough to tempt me back, being a space-age device modelled on a flying saucer. Well, the base is.
Designers Yves Malka and Pierre de Poucques came up with the gadget, which is made from a single piece of aluminium, with keys cut out using some kind of high-tech laser. All gadgets should be made that way.
Oh, and besides all manner of sums, the Roswell can act as a currency converter too. For example, it could tell you that its £32.50 price tag equates to around $65, 7,500 Yen, or 250,000 Zambian Kwacha. Really, it does. My abacus told me.
