#10 Computers

The invention of computer itself is a big thing, but the show stealer was not PC, not main frame, not even Charles Babbage’s Difference Engine(1849) or Konrad Zuse’s electromechanical Z3(1942). It was the most groundbreaking computer- ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator And Computer). The device was first electronic general-purpose computer, conceived and designed by John Mauchly and J. Presper Eckert of the University of Pennsylvania; unveiled on February 14, 1946. It was capable of being reprogrammed to solve a full range of computing problems, and was designed to calculate artillery firing tables for the United States Army's Ballistic Research Laboratory.
