I think this thing was featured in one of William Gibson's more recent books, "Pattern Recognition".

5+ because I thought he made them up and also the steampunk faggorts tag

Fooled me too.

Unfortunately, I thought that calculator was the best part of the book.

So, when does the precisely measured tuft of pepper come out?

That is just entirely too clever. And since it was designed in a concentration camp during the holocaust, clearly it doesn't actually exist.

You can find some on ebay for mucho dollars.

Wow, that is the most interesting calculator demo I've ever seen. And I was at Calculator Expo '99! The Year of the Great Calculator Explosion.

This is the coolest thing I've seen in a while. I must admit, though, that I am slightly disappointed that it did not in fact double as a pepper grinder.

Holeee shit. How do you think of that?

"Are they gonna kill us? What's going to happen?"
"Is my family ok? I haven't seen them in months..."
"spinning teeth on a drum would be a good way to add and subtract numbers"
"Is help going to come?"
