Can you scale down or crop the pictures before putting them on here they are massive but from what I see that is a pretty cool idea.

Nope. They always come out like that due to the high resolution of my monitor and I'm too lazy to adjust them.

And I thought my sand generator was genius.

So I started a new calculator. My goals for this one are the following

1) A modular design

2) All decimal input and output

3) More powerful (4-bit)

4) As small as possible

What I've built so far follows complies to all four of those rules.

That is just the Input panel. It takes a decimal input, converts it to binary and stores the number. Unlike the last one, this one also uses buttons instead of levers. So its coming out amazingly, and so far its very fast. Even though I'm trying to build this smaller though, it still may be bigger than the last one because its more powerful and it needs to do decimal conversions.

Finished the multiplier. Did not come out modular like i had hoped.

Adder and subtracter are finished. Also finished the 7-segment display

I'm ditching the 7 segment display for multiplication answers (again). The only way i know how to do it would involve separately programming every single number (and you can multiply up to 225 on this machine).The total size of a piece like that would more than double the size of the calculator currently. So, once again, I'll make a 7-seg for addition and subtraction, and a binary display for the 8 bit numbers you multiply.

Scratch that, I'm not giving up the 7 segment display for multiplication. I originally thought there were 225 combinations I would need to build for. I was tired and frustrated then. Now I did the math and there are only 89 combinations to program, and I've already done half of 30. It'll take a while, but its doable.

Eh, I'm getting lazy. The addition and subtraction parts of the calculator are completely done, the multiplication display isn't finished. Controls are fairly obvious, find the buttons, use the lever to change which number you're changing.
