The Aaron Adding Machines company is revamping the futuristic look of tech gadgets, starting with the retrofied calculators. The company is taking cues from the past with these antique inspired math calculators, all made meticulously by hand.

Aaron himself takes antique components and heavyweight levers and switches to create these antique adding devices, that work perfectly and look amazingly real. The Aaron Adding Machines company only puts out about 2-3 calculators a year at around $5,000 a piece!

Implications - With that kind of exclusive production, Aaron is definitely building a strong brand uniquely his own. "I strive to have my pieces look like they are functional, utilitarian, mass-produced devices plucked from some imaginary office of another era," he says. Judging from the pictures, he's got that point on lock.
