Again, there’s really no reason anyone should need to carry a standalone calculator these days, unless you’re the type of person who doesn’t have a cellphone, which means you’d probably opt for a slide ruler anyways. But this Lexon Credit Card Calculator designed by Sam Hecht is still awfully tempting, particularly since it’s just $6.

The most unique feature, besides it’s credit card thin form factor, is the raised numeric keys which use that ‘credit card number’ font arranged in a single line, instead of the typical grid layout. It not only allows for larger ‘buttons’ given the size of the card, but also provides some handy tactile feedback. And like I said, for just $6 from Pure Modern, it’s hard to pass up.
