Retractable Calculator Rears Its Metal Head

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  June 3, 2008

I don’t usually get too excited over the prospects of owning a new calculator, but sometimes industrial design just reaches out and speaks to me. Such is the case with designer Theo Williams’ new Jet Calculator from LEXON. The modern, minimal calculators feature a substantial metal case and a unique dot-matrix display that retracts into the case when not in use.

If the design looks kind of familiar, that’s because it’s part of the designer’s Jet series that brought us these really cool alarm clocks and clock radios. And if the gold model [€21 EUR / $32 US] isn’t your thing, there’s also a beautiful anodized aluminum version available for a few bucks less [€19 EUR / $29 US].

So if you’re looking for a cool desk accessory, and you’re not married to the calculator built into your PC, you can find these over at French design retailer Singulier.
