Retro gaming controller calculator from Urban Outfitters

Gamer calculator

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.

Lexon safe calculator

Lexon safe

We've featured the bamboo, retro-style Lexon Safe radio previously but the products in the range go beyond that piece to include clocks, flashlights and this calculator.

Designed by Elise Berthier and Pierre Garner, you can tell the calculator comes from the same design family as the radio. Its chunky keys and rounded edges give it that retro look while its got eco credentials too: solar powered and made from natural bamboo with a casing from corn starch bio-plastic. 

And the price for the calculator? It adds up to £21.40.
