Based out of Shibuya, Tokyo, the Casio Computer Company, Limited is one of the biggest electronics manufacturers in the world. Calculators, cameras, musical instruments, watches and mobile phones are all among its products, with the world's first compact electronic calculator being one of their early products, coming out in 1957 as the company adapted to new technologies, having originally been founded in 1946.
The founder, Kashio Tadao, was trained as an engineer, and very familiar with the technology needed for large-scale manufacture. At the time, calculators were largely gear-driven, powered by a hand crank or a motor, but Kashio had some ideas for using solenoids instead. He also pioneered the keypad we know today, rather than a larger layout in which as well as individual digits there were full sets of keys for the 10s, 100s, and so on. In addition, to further reduce the required size, Kashio went from having three display windows - two input windows and an answer window - to just one, producing a design much closer to the modern one.
The company would gain massive impetus in the 1980s when their inexpensive electronic equipment, particularly the musical keyboards, shot up in popularity. At the same time the wide range of wristwatches, offering more functions than most and for low prices, was building the reputation of the brand. These watches, digital and analog, were some of the first to use quartz crystals in their timekeeping, somehting which has become the standard. Casio calculator watches, and watches which would display the time across time zones, were also marketed in this period for the first time.
Then, the electronic calculators (particularly their state-of-the-art scientific calculators) and budget digital watches were the biggest parts of Casio's identity. Today, their durable, larger dual function watches - watches with both analog and digital readouts - like the Wave Ceptor and Pro Trek/Pathfinder series, both of which receive radio transmission from the atomic clock to help them mark time. Since 1983, the G-Shock range have also been popular, with the pioneering G-Shock DW-5600C still fetching high prices from collectors over thirty years on. While watches with integral games are no longer produced, they were common in the 80s and 90s.
A market-targeted Casio Malaysia product of today is the Prayer Compass watch, used to help Muslim wearers face the right direction for each of their daily prayers.
Casio released the first digital camera to contain an inbuilt LCD screen for easy review and pioneered other aspects of the digital camera business, including the first ultra-compact, use of ceramic lens technology, and the first 3 megapixel camera for the consumer market.
And their range has only grown as they produce watches, cash registers, illuminators, the Exilim series of digital cameras, film cameras, calculators, laptop and sub-notebook computers, E-Data Bank PDAs and other digital diaries, electronic dictionaries, electronic keyboards, clocks, portable televisions, electronic games and even computer printers.
