Timex - Touch Screen

Description

Brand: Timex
Model: Touch Screen
Type: Clock with calculator
Picture: Timex Touch Screen
Batteries: (to be checked)
Lifetime: Introduced: unknown
Terminated: unknown
Notes: Not a calculator as such, but a very nice design nevertheless. This is basically a clock with world times and everything but also with built-in calculator and currency converter. The pointed device on the right is detachable and can be used to operate this device.

The display is designed in such a way as to provide these rather different functions without needing multiple layers. Every touch-sensitive square on the display has up to three possible symbols. As a clock it looks like this:

Time Display

So, when pressing the Calculator symbol on the display, the device changes into a calculator and will look as displayed below.

Similar in design and functionality to the Sharp CT-200.
