I guess you might want to ask yourself why you would want a standalone calculator in 2013. But when it looks as good as the Braun BNE001 ET66 calculator, it's hard to argue against.
Is it a tape recorder? Is it a calculator? Is it a mousepad? While it might be printed with an image of tape deck, it's actually the latter two. It's a retro-looking calculator and mousepad in one, available from Culturelabel, and is sure to brighten up your office space.
This retro gaming controller calculator is one way to make sums a whole lot more fun. Available from Urban Outfitters, it has applied the functions of a calculator to the looks and shapes of a classic gaming handset.
There are a lot more keys than on your average controller: your addition, subtraction, multiplication and division keys are found where you would normally find the directions, while instead of the usual jump and attack keys you've got such delights as the square root and percentage functions.
Designed to help you master problems even more challenging than the average game, the calculator costs £12.
