Want a Cool Looking Calculator? I Dunno, Alaska.

by Paul Strauss

It takes some really striking design to get me excited about something as mundane as a desktop calculator, but the designer who created this one has bowled me over.

Alaska Acrylic LCD Calculator

The clear, ice-like acrylic case inspired the name “Alaska” for this LCD calculator. While the pictures might make it look white, you can really see all the way through it, meaning that it transforms into whatever color lies beneath it.

When looking at the calculator from off-angle, the numbers virtually vanish beneath the tall cylindrical buttons. However, when looking head-on, the digits are completely visible. I also dig the cool dot-matrix LCD screen that’s got mod square pixels. The manufacturer, Area Plus, also makes a version with removable buttons “for fun & play game,” but I’m not sure why you’d want to do that.

The Alaska acrylic calculator can be found on Japanese online boutique Cataloger, and retails for ¥3675 (about $32 USD).
