#‎TBT‬ First Fully Functional Computer: ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator And Calculator).


ENIAC was invented by J. Presper Eckert and John Mauchly at the University of Pennsylvania in attempt to calculate artillery firing table for the United States Army’s Ballistic Laboratory. It was also used for general purposes, such as solving numerical problems.The construction for ENIAC began in 1943 and was not completed until 1946. The hardware to build ENIAC consisted of 17,468 vacuum tubes and 15,000 relays; weighing in at almost 50 tons and used about 1,800 square feet of space! If we were to use a computer that big in our homes today, we would need to build an addition to the house.

Tablet Computer
If you look at the computer you are using today, you can clearly see how technology in computers has advanced over decades. We now have laptops we can carry from place to place. What about tablets or smart phones? They are also considered small computers. From researching to communicating, computers have become the way of our lifestyle and is coming to the point where we are unable to function without them.

What does the future hold for computers?
