  2. 2. Introduction Today we will skim over some highlights of computer history. We hope that you enjoy and that you learn something new.
  3. 3. The Beginning (1937) • The 1st computer was called the “Model K” adder because it was made on a kitchen table. • The same year in Germany, engineer Konrad Zuse built his Z2 computer. 3
  4. 4. Hewlett-Packard is founded (1939) • David Packard and Bill Hewlett founded their company in a Palo Alto, California garage. • The 1st product was the HP 200A audio oscillator , quickly became a popular piece of test equipment for engineers. • Walt Disney pictures ordered 8 of the 200B model. 4
  5. 5. The Complex Number Calculator(CNC) is completed (1940) • Bell Telephone Laboratories completed this calculator which was designed by George Stibitz (1939). • Stibitz performed calculations remotely on the CNC, located in New York City, and stunned the group. • This is likely to be the first example of remote access computing.
  6. 6. Konrad Zuse finishes the Z3 computer(1941) • An early computer built by German engineer Konrad Zuse(the Z3) is working in complete isolation from developments elsewhere. • Zuse supervised the reconstruction of the Z3 in the 1960’s, which is now on display at the Deutsches Museum in Munich.
  7. 7. Ferranti Mark I sold (1951) • The title of the first commercially available general-purpose computer goes to Ferranti Mark I computer to Manchester University. • A British government contract spurred its initial development but a change in government led to loss of funding and the second and only other Mark I was sold at a major loss to the University of Toronto.
  8. 8. ERA 1101 introduced(1950) • One of the first commercially produced computers customers was the U.S. navy. • The 1101, designed by by ERA but built by Remington-Rand, was intense for high-speed computing. • Many of the 1101’s basic architectural details will be used again in the 1960s later by Remington-Rand.
  9. 9. IBM 650 magnetic drum calculator introduced (1954) • IBM establishes the 650 as its first mass-produced computer, the company sold 450 in just one year • It spun at 12,500 rpm’s (revolutions per minute)the 650s magnetic data storage drum allowed access to stored info much quicker than other drum fixed machines
  10. 10. NEAC 2203 (1960) An early transistorized computer, the NEAC ( Nippon Electric Automatic Computer)
  11. 11. Amdahl 740 is introduced(1970) It was the companies first product and ran the same software as the IBM
  12. 12. VIC-20 is introduced(1980) Commodore release the VIC-20 home computer as the successor to the Commodore PET

  15. 15. Apple Retina display is Released(2010) In 2012 , Apple introduced the Retina display for the MacBook Pro Laptop and iPad Tablet.
  16. 16. Apple Watch(2015) Building a Computer into a watch has been attempted many times before but as recently a success by Apple.
  17. 17. Conclusion Thank you for letting us teach you about some main parts of computer history. We hope that you walk away with something new that you never knew before.
