  3. The “cob”culator? Where do people come up with this stuff? Haha! I’m jumping on the chocolate calculator bandwagon.

  4. Haha, yes you’re right. That’s the case for a lot of products. Somehow those type of cool but pointless products are the ones that make it into stores, and I wonder, “why didn’t I think of something like so I can be rich?” 🙂

  5. wooow those are really wonderful o(≧▽≦)o
    but that wooden calculator how did they use it weird ∑(O_O )
    the chocolate one looks like my style hehe (。♥‿♥。)
    but the scientific one is moooooooore amazing >> saving for money (ノ>▽<。)ノ

  6. Wow, I also had a credit card style calculator and even better, I have the exact same flexible calculator on my fridge right as we speak!

  7. Gee, I even remember when you actually had to write down the information and calculate stuff all by yourself! The corn calculator might be cute in a kitchen. I used to have a number of those credit card size ones. Companies started giving them away as advertising gifts! But, you’re right, I hadn’t thought about them becoming extinct but they’re on our phones, our computers, etc. Why would we buy one?

  8. I’m crazy about all the water-powered devices surfacing nowadays. If only they fell within my budget.

    I have one just thicker than the credit card calculator, but about the same size. Used to be my dad’s. I also have an antique mechanical one as big as a typewriter, but it can only add.

  9. Yep, good old trip down memory lane! I remember the Casio calculator watches… didn’t see one of those featured 🙁 and I also remember having to change the batteries in my very first scientific calculator. Woo! In fact, it got borrowed by someone who said that they had forgotten theirs and needed it for a test and when I eventually got it back… it was minus its batteries! Great post. Thanks for the memories… blimey, I sound so old….!

  10. A calculator made of chocolate would soon be missing buttons.

    I have one of those small solar powered ones. It can be handy if I don’t want to go into the room where the computer is and wait for it to boot up just to do a few calculations.

  11. Mine is assigned a calculator in his math class, but it’s a scientific calculator. Otherwise they learn the old fashioned way… By hand! Then pull out their phone for everything else! In high school ours are allowed phones for work purposes. Most of the kinds use them for research in class and buy e-books instead if paperback and read them on their phone or e-reader.
