RCL40: Recollection, Reinvention and HP Calculators

In 2022 HPCC is 40 years old. 20 years since the publication of RCL20: People, Dreams & HP Calculators we once again want to celebrate our continuing enthusiasm for HP calculators and pocket computers, and reflect on not just the most recent 20 years and the amazing things that have happened, but recollect earlier times.

RCL40, to be published in time for the HPCC 2022 40th Anniversary Conference, will include stories from some of the people at HP who designed the calculators we cherish, as well as people in the club and around the world who have devised modern components to keep alive our curiosity and enhance our machines way beyond their original life expectancies.

Project Timelines

The timescales for production of RCL40 are subject to change and have some flexibility compared to the frankly ridiculous timescales that RCL20 was produced in. Progress will be discussed at HPCC meetings, so please join a session on the 2nd or 4th Saturday of the month if you want to catch up.
