Maru Cedar Calculator

My goodness, is this just about the most beautiful calculator you've ever seen? Yeah, most of us have ditched a real world calculator for a computer widget, but how beautiful would this look on any desk for the occasional foray into tapping back into addition/subtraction tasks...

Designed by Takumi Shimamura, the Maru calculator is carefully hand-made one by one with Yanese cedar from Japan. The keyboard beautiful front panel is actually one thin layer of cedar wood, formed into a curvilinear shape with a 3D dimensional mould. And the Maru won't just look great on your desk, it also has the added bonus of providing a lovely cedar aroma. Pardon the pun, but this design adds up in our eyes.
