No, you are not hallucinating, we are indeed featuring a calculator on EP – and a robot inspired calculator at that. Is the end of the world neigh? Have we completely lost the plot? Is this the precursor to a nervous breakdown? Well, save the latter (which is a distinct possibility), quite the contrary.
Admittedly, we suspect that a good few of you will immediately discount this particular item, and vote it down accordingly but, never ones to site on the fence, we genuinely love the whimsical, playful nature of this adding machine which is sure to appeal to children (good from an educational perspective) as well as the older amongst us looking for an adding machine that will bring a little colour to our office desks. And, let’s be honest here, anything that can raise a smile while you perform the role of a wage slave is alright by us.
The Galactic Addition Robot Calculator is an 8 digit device that comes complete with movable arms and legs, an integrated disk magnet for holding paper clips (and paper notes when using the supplied note holder attachment) and it even comes with a built-in push button light to bring a little illumination into the murky realm of those who regularly burn the midnight oil.
The Galactic Addition Robot Calculator comes in three colours, retails for around £15 / $30 and, in case you hadn’t guessed, we adore it (if only because, sometimes, its good to drop the guard and just enjoy things for what they are).
