Electronic Calculator M by Naoto Fukasawa

Perfectly simple solar-powered calculator by Naoto Fukasawa.

No matter how complex your calculations may be, the Electric Calculator M was designed to make things a bit more simple. With easy to read numbers, a slightly elevated display section, and uniform color on both body and keys, any elements of complexity have been scaled back as much as possible. The idea of doing work has suddenly become a bit more attractive…

Pico Drive

Since I’m an aspiring minimalist (it’s a struggle), I’ve been trying to implement the paper free lifestyle described in this Lifehacker article. I’ve been scanning in my old paperwork and shredding it and saving everything to my tiny USB key. I’ve been a little paranoid about what would happen if I lost it or it got wet, but I do back it up to two separate harddrives just in case. This particular one is 8 GB (which would be enough to hold a lifetime of data) and it’s shock and water resistant.

PXR-6 Ultranoir

The PXR-6 has been revamped on the inside, but functions and looks the same on the outside.

The functions remain the same and are simple, clear and to the point: time and date on a dark background with light type. And when the light button is pressed, it glows with beautiful blue light. The bracelet is almost an inch wide and can be adjusted to a minimum length of 6.5″ (16,5 cm) or a maximum of 8.25″ (21 cm).

I have the wallet version of this little zippered bag and it’s quite handy. I’ve had it for a few years and get quite a few compliments on it, but it’s been sold out for a long time and it’s nice to see it’s back.
