Toshiba introduced around 1979 with the LC-851 a very thin but robust calculator.
Dismantling the calculator reveals some surprises:It uses still a rigid printed circuit board (PCB) instead the common flexible PCBs.
Don't miss other credit card sized calculators of that timeframe and visit the Canon LC-6.
Don't miss the Casio FIML CARD SL-800,
a real credit card sized calculator with a thickness of only 0.030".
