Texas Instruments introduced in the year 1989 with the LOOK series a very colorful basic calculator. Three different designs were available:
|• TI-701 aka LOOK Graffiti
• TI-702 aka LOOK City Night
• TI-703 aka LOOK Blue Ocean
All models shared the same design idea of a round "light
pipe" to collect the ambient light and travel it to the high efficiency solar
Dismantling this TI-703 LOOK manufactured in July 1989 by Inventec Corporation in Taiwan reveals a pretty simple internal construction.
The LOOK series of calculators received an award for its outstanding design from the German HIF (Haus Industrieform Essen).
The TI-703 could be called the successor of the TI-1104
introduced three years ago.
