Re: The Stone Age Electronic Calculator
Stone age electronics = very difficult. Some things like radio communication could possibly be done; but digital/analog calculations/readouts would be tough.
Why not an abacus for calculations? (They were demonstrably faster than a computer for years after computers were invented).
The standard portable engineering calculator used to be the slide rule (I had to go electronic in school not for accuracy but to allow time to check results on tests). A bit of time with a stone knife and some bits of wood/bone would produce an adequate aproximation...
Out of curiosity; what would stone age people need to calculate that couldn't be done with fingers or on a handy piece of hide?
