jun 13, 1967 - Portable Calculator Invented
Around 1967, Texas Instruments was looking for a new and innovative product, when they thought of the first hand-held calculator. The first calculator was put together by 2 men, Jerry Merryman and James Van Tassel. This device was just a little over six inches tall and weighed about 55 pounds. Since the cost was at a pretty pricey rate of 2,500, not many people owned one, but it was one of the most wanted product during this time.
