    I was wondering if anyone would be interested in chatting about how to make an Electronic Calculator if you were transported back to the Stone age and you could only take this manual.

    here is a list of other building requirements.
    1. It has to be electric. No abacus's, slide rules, mechanical calculators, differential engines etc.
    2. It has to be easily transportable in the wild so no big machinery.
    3. has to be built by one person.
    4. we must assume that this person has not tools.
    5. we must take into consideration that this person needs to survive in the wild as well.

    This thread is meant for people who want to try to make the manual not those who want to talk about whether it is possible or why to make the manual. If you would like to have a discussion about that please create another thread and link. This is meant to be fun... and meaningfull.

    I realize this is a star wars site but I think this topic is very similar to science fiction narrative and I thought it would interest you all. Plus I am a huge star wars fan.

    I made this.
