The Phorm calculator is an early calculator that was heavily influenced by ergonomic design. The calculator was made in 2 versions – for right and left handed users. It also feature an LCD display that can be angled for easier viewing.
Future Forms is attempting to document the best in industrial design as it relates to consumer electronics. There is definitely more attention paid to design today but these past products deserve more credit than they are given. I feel these designs were ahead of their time and still hold up today. My hope is that by making this site open to contributions, we can learn more about both the products and the individuals that made them.
