Yes, they made quite a few calculator models. I've only seen one myself.
My father used it in his engineering work many years ago. I now have it,
and although it is functional, a friend that I lent it to smashed the case
up pretty badly by accidentally hurtling it against a cement floor. <s>

It's a PR-100 programmable scientific calculator. It has one of those
very intense orange displays (I forget what the technology is).

My father says that the engineering firm he worked for used to have tons
of Commodore equipment around. Mostly mechanical adding machines and
office furniture. :)

I've been running into far more Commodore furniture recently than
Commodore computers.
