Dr Toh Chin Chye was at Singapore Science Centre to retrieve a 1973 Science Time Capsule that was buried here 10 years ago. In the Capsule, two main items were retrieved - a Hewlett-Packard HP-35 Calculator and a Rollei 35 Camera. Dr Toh said the HP 35 calculator is out-of-date but the Hewlett-Packard is still in Singapore but sadly Rollei has gone-out-of business. He then commented "the art of marketing a technology was as important as the technology itself".
