ThinkGeek Slide Rule – The Original Pocket Calculator

Gone are the days when geeks lived boring lives. With the advent of microprocessors, people can get more things done within a given period of time. But still, doing everything is considerably slower like when looking for just a piece of information and you’re in a huge library with millions of books. Of course, you need to spend some time going through files of catalog cards and dealing with Dewey Decimal numbers. In times when you need to do some computations but computers are out of sight, the Thinkgeek Slide Rule is a ray of hope you can depend on.

This is no extraordinary device or a fun gizmo at all. It is just a plain ruler with a sliding component that’s capable of doing all the difficult mathematical computations in less the time. No matter what operations you want to perform – multiplication, subtraction, division, trigonometry, logarithms, roots – name it and you can do it with so much ease.

So if you have one right now, you own something that represents technological history while doing your much-needed math calculations.

Each ThinkGeek Slide Rule is hand-tooled and printed individually and it comes equipped with a vinyl sleeve in a genuine retro-styled box. This is the only slide rule manufactured today and it can be operated without the need for batteries. It comes 12.5 inches long so you can bring it anywhere you want to go.
