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 cells.
The LOOK series of calculators received an award for its outstanding design from the German HIF (Haus Indurstrieform Essen).
The TI-703 could be called the successor of the TI-1104 introduced three years ago.
