085 : A wooden abacus

085----- Naoya Hasegawa
長谷川 直哉

This abacus is the second abacus for me when I went into the society after graduation. The first abacus was bought by my parents at my elementary school days, that did not move easily. At that time, there was neither a personal computer nor a calculator. I analyzed the material and calculated with this. I analyzed and judged the correlation, profit and loss. The movement of my finger was slow, I sometimes worked all night long. It is a society that goes out the answer only to input material to the personal computer, and to push the instruction button now. This abacus was my sweats and tears, judgment tool, and warehouse.
