HP is throwing up awesome-looking applications that replicate the functionality of calculators from the past. iPhone Central:

Hewlett-Packard (HP) today announced iPhone-app versions of three classic HP calculators: the HP 12c, HP 12c Platinum, and HP 15C.

This is a crazy idea, but at least one commenter on the original article claims that he would buy an iPhone just to have an app of the 11c. The screenshot of the app makes it look well-designed and nostalgia-tinged.

This is my favorite image from the set I took during my visit to CP Pinball last Friday. I’m working on a longer blog post about the experience and the place (which you should visit at least once someday when you are in St. Louis), but for now, this will have to do.


The table in question is Grand Prix, an older Williams one.
