I found a small calculator in my room and disassembled it, which yielded 5 distinct pieces: the back, the keys, the front (in blue), the key pad (in red), and the motherboard/screen/battery (in yellow).
Going into this, I didn’t really have a plan; I’m pretty sure I got sidetracked by the excitement of whoa this is what’s in a calculator?! In retrospect, I maybe should’ve thought this out a little better instead of plopping things down where they felt best, but I don’t think it turned out too badly. The key pad, in red, reminds me of a tire track and I like that the front part of the calculator, in blue, is vaguely tardis-y.
Great low-tech use of a high tech (at least it was once) object.
