One of my calculator-collecting interests/obsessions is special-purpose calculators. While calculators designed for specialized applications have been made by several manufacturers, Calculated Industries is the current reigning expert (since 01978) in offering calculators preprogrammed for different specific uses.
A lot of the things being done by CI can be
accomplished on a standard programmable calculator or on a
PC--indeed, the I'net is teeming with downloadable software for
many of the applications covered here--but there's something
undeniably cool about having a highly specialized machine
available for your particular calculating needs.
02012 update: It was my great pleasure recently to
receive an email from Mark Paulsen, Vice President for Marketing
at CI, indicating his approval of this project (and a note
pointing out a calculator I'd missed, which is now included on the
list below). It's oddly nice to know that someone at CI HQ
has seen this page.
