    Hmm… Curta calculators in decent condition are going for about $1300 on eBay.

    If somebody were to start a crowd-funding campaign to make a (assemble-it-yourself kit?) replica, I’d surely back that. Until then I’ll have to be satisfied with my slide rules and abacii.

        You can find them much cheaper than that at flea markets.

        There’s also a set procedure for doing multiplications on curtas. They are arguably the most beautiful artifact of the 20th century.

            This makes me remember an online Curta simulator (unfortunately, implemented in Flash; but hey it was 2003).
