  • The Pascaline

    The Pascaline
    The Pascaline, also known as the Arithmetic Machine was made between 1642 thruogh 1644. It was made by Blaise Pascal for his father who needed a faster way to calculate numbers, but you could only use addition and subtraction. This was a pre-first generation "computer".

  • The Analytical Engine

    The Analytical Engine
    Charles Babbage created this compuyting machine that could not only calculate numbers, but could also print out the infromation needed. This was designed by Babbage and nedded over 1000 peices to assemble. This was the next big thing after the Pascaline. (a pre-1st generation computer.

  • 1941 Bombe

    1941 Bombe
    The Bombe was a replica of the Polish "Bomba" and was used during WWII to decrypt Nazi communications. It was designed by Alan Turing and many others, and many were used to improve the Allied intelligence gathering. Pre-computer

    In February, the public got its first glimpse of the ENIAC, a machine built by John Mauchly and J. Presper Eckert that improved by 1,000 times on the speed of its contemporaries.
    Start of project: 1943
    Completed: 1946 tom
    Programmed: plug board and switches
    Speed: 5,000 operations per second
    Input/output: cards, lights, switches, plugs
    Floor space: 1,000 square feet
    Project leaders: John Mauchly and J. Presper Eckert.
  • ENIAC

    ENIAC
    It is the first electronic general purpose computer. Although when it released it was supposed to be used for calculating numbers it was instead used for war purposes mainly.

  • Wilkes with the EDSAC

    Wilkes with the EDSAC
    Maurice Wilkes assembled the EDSAC, the first practical stored-program computer, at Cambridge University. His ideas grew out of the Moore School lectures he had attended three years earlier.
    tom
    For programming the EDSAC, Wilkes established a library of short programs called subroutines stored on punched paper tapes.
    Technology: vacuum tubes
    Memory: 1K words, 17 bits, mercury delay line
    Speed: 714 operations per second

    This computer was started in 1948, it was offically completed in 1950, This computer was used for cauculating things very well. MADDIE PAGE (MADELYN)
  • Silicon Transistors are introduced

    Silicon Transistors are introduced
    The first silicon transistors are introduced in 1954 as a replacement for vacuum tubes. They brought down the cost of components and made computer processing faster.

  • Components

    Components
    Felker and Harris program TRADIC, AT&T Bell Laboratories announced the first fully transistorized computer, TRADIC. It contained nearly 800 transistors instead of vacuum tubes. Transistors — completely cold, highly efficient amplifying devices invented at Bell Labs — enabled the machine to operate on fewer than 100 watts, or one-twentieth the power required by comparable vacuum tube computers.tom
  • Robots & Artificial Intelligence

    Robots & Artificial Intelligence
    SRI International´s Shakey was the first robot controlled by artificial intelligence.It is equipedwith sensing devices and driven by a problem-solving program called STRIPS, the robot rolled around the halls of SRI by applying information about its surroundings to finda route. Shakey used a TV camera, laser range finder, and bump sensors to collect data.

  • PDP-1 computer is made

    PDP-1 computer is made
    The PDP-1 was one of the first computers to have a screen for output. It was still very large, and used silicon transistors. On this computer, the first video game, SpaceWar! was created. This set the path for the creation of video games.

  • MIT Altair 8800

    MIT Altair 8800
    Was considered the first "personal" computer and was mail ordered. Kits were sold to hobbyist so they could build it themselves, but many businesses and people wanted a personal computer and would buy them already pre-made. It saved MIT from going bankrupt and also ignited the flame of the microcomputer revolution. 3rd generation
