HP 35 – 40 years old today

hp35.pngThe HP-35 was HP’s first pocket calculator and the first scientific calculator. Its award winning approach brought a range of innovations (first product to have both ICs and LEDs), put many a slide rule on the shelf.

 

There is some interesting history about the calculator on-line (including the problems based on the lack of precision in the mainframe computers that effected the testing of the calculator).

 

You can still buy a version today.
