- The Scheutz Difference Engine completed: the world’s first printing calculator. - The Odhner calculator, invented by the Swedish engineer W.T. Odhner, is based on the pin-wheel principle.   Editor's Notes. Because it's currently tough to find the Casio FRTM, we decided to remove it, but we still think that the Monroe UltimateX, Sharp Heavy Duty, and Victor are all fine choices. The UltimateX is a strong option for professional use, with all the features accountants and payroll managers could desire, but it does have the outsized price tag to match.

This miniature calculator (the world's first) employed a large-scale integrated semiconductor array containing the equivalent of thousands of discrete semiconductor devices. Measuring /4 x /8 x /4 inches, it was the first mini-calculator to have the high degree of computational power found only at the time in considerably larger machines. The Scheutz Difference Engine completed: the world's first printing calculator. Start of period of development of commercially successful mechanical calculators. Frank Baldwin in the USA invents the pin-wheel calculator.
