A quick little movie, only a minute long.  But took eight hours to render and animate.

I was throwing this calculator away as was is broken, but thought I'd draw it first just for fun.  I've put this link in the movies section simply because there hasn't been anything posted here since mid 2017.   The tracks on the pcb and clear sheet, are hand drawn using capped double lines with thickness (they took quite a while to get right).

This is the first time I've visited this page since you posted this, Andy. And I think it's a jaw-dropper.
