to the web site for Casio's U.S. R&D Center.
Located in San Jose,
California, our R&D Center explores new product concepts,
strategic directions, and business opportunities
for Casio. In our work, we merge Casio's expertise in consumer
electronics with Silicon Valley's emphasis
on computers and the Internet. We think this makes for a winning
tradition of innovation dates back to 1957, when we introduced
one of the first electronic calculators
to the general market. Since then, Casio was the first to introduce
PCs and digital
cameras to the consumers. Most recently, Casio has
just brought to market the world's first wristwatch
with built-in global positioning system.
