The History of Computers

  • Chemical battery was invented

  • First Programmable Computer

  • Telephone

    The telephone was invented
  • Moving pictures

    Thomas Edison, while not having been able to link sound and motion to his kinetograph and kinetoscope was able to to make a silent movie with them. He had constructed the world's first motion picture stage, which he'd named the 'Black Maria.' The kinetoscopes were able to give an individual depiction of a moving image, and the viewer had to look through a lens.
  • Slot machines

    Charles Fey a San Francisco Mechanic builds the First Slot Machines which he puts into local bars, the deal was simple Fey and the Bar Owner would split the profits 50-50.
  • Vacuum cleaner

    In 1901 the vacuum cleaner was invented by HUbert Cecil Booth
  • Neon lights

    Neon lights were invented in 1910
  • Electric guitar

    In 1935 the electric guitar was invented
  • Wide screen cinema

    In 1952 the wide screen cinema was invented
  • TV remote

    In 1955 the TV remote was inveted.
  • Microwave oven

    In 1945 Raytheon's Percy Spencer stands in front of a magnetron (the power tube of radar) and feels a candy bar start to melt in his pocket: He is intrigued. When he places popcorn kernels in front of the magnetron, the kernels explode all over the lab. Ten years later Spencer patents a "radar range" that cooks with high-frequency radio waves; that same year, the Tappan Stove Co. introduces the first home microwave model.
  • Video games were invented

  • Jet planes

    The Boeing 707-120 debuts as the world's first successful commercial jet airliner, ushering in the era of accessible mass air travel. The four-engine plane carries 181 passengers and cruises at 600 mph for up to 5280 miles on a full tank. The first commercial jet flight takes off from New York and lands in Paris; domestic service soon connects New York and Los Angeles.
  • Smoke detector

    Randolph Smith and Kenneth House patent a battery-powered smoke detector for home use. Later models rely on perhaps the cheapest nuclear technology you can own: a chunk of americium-241. The element's radioactive particles generate a small electric current. If smoke enters the chamber it disrupts the current, triggering an alarm.
  • The Internet

    The Internet was officially introduced even though it was initially invented in 1968 by a number of people.
  • First Email

    The first email ever sent was sent by Ray Tomlinson in 1972. He sent it to a computer tha was next to him and the email said 'QWERTYUIOP'.
  • MRI scans

    Everyone agrees that magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a brilliant invention—but no one agrees on who invented it. The physical effect that MRIs rely on—nuclear magnetic resonance—earns various scientists Nobel Prizes for physics in 1944 and 1952. Many believe that Raymond Damadian establishes the machine's medical merit in 1973, when he first uses magnetic resonance to discern healthy tissue from cancer. Yet, in 2003, the Nobel Prize for medicine goes to Peter Lauterbur and Peter Mansfield fo
  • DNA fingerprinting

    Molecular biologist Alec Jeffreys devises a way to make the analysis of more than 3 billion units in the human DNA sequence much more manageable by comparing only the parts of the sequence that show the greatest variation among people. His method quickly finds its way into the courts, where it is used to exonerate people wrongly accused of crimes and to finger the true culprits.

    It is predicted that in 2030, commercial planes will fly without pilots.
  • Log on

    It is predict that you will be able to log on directly from your brain. It is 10/1 that this will happen.
  • Artificial intelligence

    At least 1 A.I (artificial intelligence) being has the status of cooperation. It is 100/1 that this is going to happen.
