The Stone Age Electronic Calculator (SAEC) is designed to question perceptions of modern computational instruments and therefore, information based societies in general by providing an instruction manual that restricts the building of an electronic calculator to the modes of physical production that were available during prehistoric times.
An online website with collaborative functionally is used as a tool to develop the manual as well as a device to examine if modern computational instruments can provide rapid information production for utilization in primitive societies.
The SAEC is an open ended public participatory project where by members of the pubic are free to exchange and edit its contents.
