Handheld calculators are familiar gadgets, but they are hard to use reliably. We have invented a completely new sort of calculator that is very easy to use, much more powerful, more reliable in principle, and - best of all - great fun to use. People smile and laugh when they use it! Better still, when we used it in math exams, students scored 100% instead of the 60% when using their own standard handheld calculators.
