Canon Eco-Friendly Calculators

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Misc. Tech

TS-1200TGWe haven’t used a hand calculator in a very long time, but if we did we would surely choose one of Canon’s eco-friendly line, with upper and lower casings made of 100% recycled plastic from Canon Copiers. Each is lightweight and has a large liquid crystal display and runs on lithium coin mercury-free batteries and/or solar power. Choose between the LS-154TG for $10.99, the HS-1000TG at $15.99 or the TS-1200TG with a price of $19.99.

Sonar II Burner Wicked Lasers

So we’ve been trying to stay fairly frugal in our 2008 Gift Guide, but we’ve gotten a bunch of email from people asking where all the high-priced items have gone.

You’ve got a 405nm violet beam at your fingertips. Of course, all that power comes at a price, and if you wanna get in on the action, the Sonar II Burner will cost you $1,999.99. See? We weren’t kidding.
