A Calculator is a small electronic device used to do basic mathematical calculations.
In their original production styles, they are primitive, have limited mathematical capabilities, and are relatively expensive, starting at around Cr50. The late TL–8 models are quite capable, with some limited programmability and graphic display capability, and very cheap. Some limited use TL–8 calculators can be produced for Cr0.1 in massive numbers as novelty items.
Most calculators run on batteries, which allow use for a year or more, or incorporate small solar cells to provide all the power they need.
Calculators do not have external connections, relying upon the user to input numbers and apply the results manually.
