Solar-powered calculators have been on the scene since the 1970s, but nothing much, except the shape, has changed since. Now a solar-powered calculator made entirely from bamboo is putting a modern twist on this old school device. This hand held electronic calculator from a Japanese manufacturer boasts a natural feel and a unique look that will look ever-so-appealing on any desk. Measuring 14.8cm long, 9.4cm broad and 1.5cm thick, the bamboo calculator weighs only 185g and has a standard 12-digit display for maximum calculation. Gadgets and accessories made from bamboo are making into the trend steadily—we bet it won’t be long until we’re punching away at a bamboo iPhone!
