Unknown Charles babbage started to make Analytical Engine SourceCharles Babbage, who's called as the father of the computing, began to develope his Analytical Engine, which was designed to carry out more complicated calculations, but this device was never built.
Analyticalengine Analytical Engine made by Chales babbage SourceHe made the Analytical Engine which is generally used for mathemetical calculations. The design of this machine possesses all the essential logical features of the modern general purpose computer.
Atanasoff john2 The earliest attempt to build an electronic computer was by J. V. Atanasoff He is a professor of physics and mathematics at Iowa State
220px bombe rebuild 1 Alan Turing made a bombe. SourceTuring had specified an electromechanical machine which could help break Enigma faster than the other machines that are previously made. The machine was called the bombe.
Who invented the computer Atanasoff and student Clifford Berry built a calculator like machine That machine can solve 29 simultaneous equations. But, the machine was not programmable, and was more of an electronic calculator.
6a00d83452989a69e201156fb276bf970c 800wi Colossus was made by Tommy Flower. sourceIt was the second early electronic machine and it was made for the British military. This machine played an important role in breaking codes used by the German army in World War II. The existence of Colossus was kept secret until long after the war ended.
Eniac ENIAC was announced by J. Presper Eckert and John V. Mauchly. (Electronic Numerical Integrator And Computer)
It was the first general-purpose electronic computer. In addtion, it was used extensively for calculations during the design of the hydrogen bomb.
Gogp Two machines, LARC and the IBM 7030, were made. People started to work harder to get the supercomputer that are good at numeric processing in scientific applications. The Livermore Atomic Research Computer (LARC) and the IBM 7030 were early examples of machines that overlapped memory operations with processor operations.
Tradic TRADIC was made by by J. H. Felker. It stands for TRansistorized Airborne DIgital Computer. TRADIC, the first machine that used the electronic switches technology, was made at Bell Laboratories. In addition, it was the first transistorized computer in the USA
Eniac ENIAC was used in various fields. sourcePeople started to use ENIAC for researchring on the design of wind tunnels, random number generators, and weather prediction.
Images ASCII becomes a standard. ASCII becomes a standard as the first general purpose computer language.
Photo s ARPA, the first CUP is developed and UNIX is created. In this part the internet is born with its predescessor ARPA, the first cpu is developed. In addtion, one of the most important operating system called UNIX is created in thes period.
Hp35 HP35 has been made. the Hewlett Packard handheld scientific calculator HP35. The HP-35 was the first pocket calculator. It was introduced at a time when most calculators had only the basic functions.
Unknown Floppy disks have been invented. It is a data starage that is composed of flexible magnetic storage that is sealed in a square or rectangula plastic carrier.
Apple 1 Steve Jobs sourceFounders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak effectively created Apple Computer with the release of the Apple I.
Caos42 1 The first commercial successful softwares are realeased. sourceThe first commercial successful softwares like VisiCalc and Wordstar are to be released. The first Operating systems for microcomputers appear on the market.
Osborne1 First portable computer was made by Osborne. It was released by Osborne Computer Corporation, the Osborne 1 is considered to be the first true portable computer and has a carrying handle. It even has an optional battery pack, so it doesn't have to plugged into the 110V.
Grid computing 1 The FGCS project begins. The FGCS(or Future Generation Computing System) project begins and receives $450,000,000.
Glossar hardware f Hardwares called PSI and SOMPOS are released. The first FGCS hardware known as the Personal Sequential Inference Machine (PSI) and the first version of the Sequential Inference Machine Programming Operating System (SIMPOS) operating system is released.
Images The trend of computer changes. Trend setting are Multi Media machines. Sound, picture, video and TV features are becoming highly in demand
Unknown kevin-warwick became the world first cyborg. sourceKevin Warwick, a Professor of Cybernetics at Reading University, became the world’s first cyborg in 1998. He turned his arm into a machine. As a result, he can turn on lights by snapping his fingers; once he let his wife’s brain waves take control of his body.

First Generatoni Electronic Computers

to
Second Generation In this generation, several important developments came up. Lots of computer system got designed from the technology used to build the basic circuits to the programming languages used to write scientific applications.

to
Third Generation This generation brought huge gains in computational power. Instead of magnetic core, people in this era started to use the integrated circuit and semiconductor memories.

to
Fourth Generation This generation saw the use of large scale integration in the construction of computing elements.

to
Fifth Generation. The fifth generation saw the introduction of machines with hundreds of processors that could all be working on different parts of a signal program.

to
Sixth Generation It starts with developing parallel computing, both in the hardware area and in improved understanding of how to develop algorithms to use various of parallel architectures.
