Pascal Blaise's Calculator "Pascaline"

7 comments
Hello everyone,

I wanted to create a new category called " Great Inventions"
Basicly a set based on the most know inventions and their inventors.
In all box should be also a booklet about the so called inventions with photos and background information for education,
As a second idea it would be useful to take the birthdate or the patent number for the set number

Here i show you my idea of Pascal Blaise's Calculator:

Pascal's calculator (also known as the arithmetic machine or Pascaline) is a mechanical calculator invented by Blaise Pascal in the early 17th century. Pascal was led to develop a calculator by the laborious arithmetical calculations required by his father's work as the supervisor of taxes in Rouen. He designed the machine to add and subtract two numbers directly and to perform multiplication and division through repeated addition or subtraction.

Pascal's calculator was especially successful in the design of its carry mechanism, which adds 1 to 9 on one dial, and carries 1 to the next dial when the first dial changes from 9 to 0. His innovation made each digit independent of the state of the others, enabling multiple carries to rapidly cascade from one digit to another regardless of the machine's capacity. Pascal was also the first to shrink and adapt for his purpose a lantern gear, used in turret clocks and water wheels. This innovation allowed the device to resist the strength of any operator input with very little added friction.
