Does what a calculator should do
The interface consists of a square containing 17 buttons: A numerical keypad a decimal point button a 'C' button to clear the most recent calculation four buttons for performing the most commonly used mathematical functions and finally and perhaps most importantly an 'equals' sign. Sequential manipulation of these buttons allows the user to perform an infinite number of calculations as long they involve nothing more complex than some simple addition subtraction multiplication or division. The most obvious application for such a simple device would be for people who are partially sighted. The buttons are large and readable making them easy to use with a mouse or a touch screen. It would also be a good first calculator for a child just starting on their magical mathematical journey.
