    • ComputerA computer is a programmable machine that receives input, stores and manipulates data, and provides output in auseful format.While a computer can, in theory, be made out of almost anything (see misconceptions section), and mechanical examplesof computers have existed through much of recorded human history, the first electronic computers were developed in themid-20th century (1940–1945). Originally, they were the size of a large room, consuming as much power as severalhundred modern personal computers (PCs).[1] Modern computers based on integrated circuits are millions to billionsof times more capable than the early machines, and occupy a fraction of the space.[2] Simple computers are small enoughto fit into mobile devices, and can be powered by a small battery. Personal computers in their various forms are icons ofthe Information Age and are what most people think of as "computers". However, the embedded computers found inmany devices from MP3 players to fighter aircraft and from toys to industrial robots are the most numerous.
