Best Answer

The Curta calculator was the first handheld calculator. It was invented during WW2 by a prisoner in a Nazi concentration camp named Curta. The first model was intended as a gift for Hitler, but the war ended too soon

Curta's were produced from about 1947 to 1976, when electronic handheld calculators killed Curta's market.
