A video of a small 8bit calculator build within the LittleBigPlanet world creation platform for the PlayStation 3. This is the emulation of an electronic calculator with 610 switches, 500 wires, 430 pistons, 70 emitters and more implemented in the beta version of the creator.
“…I have made an “electronic” 8bit calculator (not “mechanical” calculator) with the Beta LBP demo.it do decimal/binary conversions and it can do Add and Sub.
There are probably more simple solutions for calculator machine but i was more interested by this “electronic” solution for the fun …”

It’s Friday again and you have almost made it through this week. So if you’re asking yourself how much longer will I have to stay in this valley of misery – well here’s the Millionaire calculator.
It will most likely not help to cheer you up – but keep in mind, the 5 minutes you were using this little applet have just got you a bit closer to your target.
Best saving plan advice (“Dire Straits”)”…Get your money for nothin’ get your chicks for free…”
For a better understanding of the overall concept we recommend Virus Comix’ “Circle of Life”.
In this vintage Muppets clip Kermit and Grump are playing around with visual thinking. It’s a remake of the original black & white version with Kermit and Harry the Hipster. Kind of funny how the language of Kermit has changed since the 70s.
This clip is actually from an Japanese advertising but really a great watch. 26 basic Judo throws demonstrated by an Japanese Judo master (with another one thrown of course) and showing all the throws in record time. Finally you know how to pronounce some of them like a Japanese without getting bruised…
We found this great piece of 1960s thinking put online by “Add to the Bone” …the legendary… the subversive… the long out of print…The Executive Coloring Book…
