There are several people whose work is noteworthy in this regard. I recommend "Why Was the Computer Invented When It Was" by Tom Korner for a good overview on how and when the first computers were developed. http://plus.maths.org/issue20/features/korner/ Answer Listen this:- Mapier(the inventor of longarithms) Charles Babbage(English Mathematican) Ada Byron(daughter of Lord Byron,the famous poet.) Babbage is often thought of as being the father of computer because of his inventions. Ada is usually considered to be the first computer programmer because of her analyses and explanation of Babbage's work. The first computer was invented by a british scientist Charles P.Babbage in 1822 but completed in 1871 by Helmet P.Babbage (the son of Charles P.Babbage). Answer The Difference Engine: The first of these devices was conceived in 1786 by J. H. Mueller. It was never built. Difference engines were forgotten and then rediscovered in 1822 by Charles Babbage. This machine used the decimal numbers system and was powered by cranking a handle. The British government first financed the project but then later cut off support. Babbage went on to design his much more general analytical engine but later returned and produced an improved design (his "Difference Engine No. 2") between 1847 and 1849. Answer I researched, and found out the real inventor of the very first computer. Her (yes it's a her) name was MARINA NEUMANN. Although she was not recognized for her invention she was the one that invented it. The one that was recognized for her work was her father VON NEUMANN. The only reason she did not get recognized for her work was because she was a girl. The year was 1830. Answer Everyone who says it was Charles Babbage really should do more research, because even if u talk about the first eletrical computer he never made a working one. He just helped the future comp builders to produce the first digital computer. Answer ENIAC was not the first of it's kind. The UK Ministry of Defence had one running during World War 2. I met one of the people who worked on it. When not at work, one of his hobby activities was embroidery - he created brilliant embroideries.

It was invented in 1856 by an English fellow named Charles Babbage. Nobody really knows when the first computer was invented. It has many inventors that have contributed t…o the history of computers. technically speaking the first computer was made in the c.3rd century A.D. it was called the abacus is consisted of of movable counters to speed up computations it is not known as to whom made the abacus but just remember that computers are counting machines and that some of the first computers were made for calculation and there for they are calculators. Charles Babbage's Analytical Engine back in 1837 is considered to be the first computer by many experts. There were several people whose work is noteworthy in this regard. I recommend "Why Was the Computer Invented When It Was" by Tom Korner for a good overview on how and when the first computers were developed. maths.org is a good reference. .

You could start with Charles Babbage's Difference engine or the ABC created by John Vincent Atanasoff and Clifford Berry in 1942. Also consider the mechanical analog computer known as the Antikythera Mechanism built ca. 100 BC it may have been created by Archimedes.
Answer The Altair 8800, from Micro Instrumentation Telemetry Systems (MITS) of Albuquerque, NM, was first featured in the January 1975 edition of Popular El…ectronics. It is considered by many to be the first mass produced personal computer. The Altair was initially offered only as a kit. It comprised of a case, a power supply, a front panel and a passive motherboard with 16 expansion slots. All of the circuitry - the CPU and memory, are on cards which plug into the expansion slots, which MITS called the Altair bus. No keyboard or monitor was necessary, or cheaply available, users flipped switches on the front panel, writing their own programs in machine language, and watching the LEDs on the panel light up in response to their commands. Bill Gates and Paul Allen saw an opportunity and wrote Altair BASIC, a true programming language, and the first commercial Microsoft computer product.
John Atanasoff and Clifford Berry invented the first electronic-digital computer at Iowa State University between 1939 and 1942. The Atanasoff-Berry Computer (ABC) represe…nted several innovations in computing, including a binary system of arithmetic, parallel processing, regenerative memory, and a separation of memory and computing functions.
The world's first dynamic random access memory (DRAM) chip, the Intel 1103 Computer Memory chip, was invented in 1970. The team that produced it was led by Dr. Robert H. Denna…rd.
Bill Gates and his friend Paul Allan Yes and no, but the real PC as we know it that has three components was first conceived by Govany Perony in Houston, Texas. Compaq was th…e first to manufacture this computer. As reported by the Founders of Compaq the idea was first sketched on a place mat at a houston restaurant House of Pies. The real story that I wouild like the Founders to repudiate is that Mr. Govany Perony a then recently laid off from Texas Instruments first sketched the concept on a napkin at a Dunkin Donuts on Westhimer, Houston and showed it to a Founder. Mr. Govany Perony was an Engineering Technician working in BI-POLAR III at Texas Instruments Stafford Plant at the time. One of the Founders was at the Dunkin Donuts, Mr. Perony struck a conversation with him when he noticed the red Tex. Instruments tag on the Founder's car.

The very first braille computer terminal was invented by a woodworking teacher at the Perkins School for the Blind named David Abraham. This was in 1951. It was very different… from what we would now recognize as a refreshable braille display device. The modern type of braille display was developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology in 2000. The National Institute of Standards and Technology invented the Braille display in 2000.
Lamps of various types were created in prehistoric times. Oil lamps were used for many centuries, and gas lamps became commonplace in the late 19th century. Among the first el…ectric lamps was that of Humphrey Davy in 1802. However, Thomas Edison is credited with inventing the practical incandescent light bulb in 1879.
The first safety razor was invented in 1762. The person who invented it was a Frenchman named Jean-Jacques Perret. In 1875, the Kampfe Brothers came out with a new design.…
Joseph Nicephore Niepce created the first photographic image in 1826 with the pinhole camera. George Eastman invented a simple camera in 1888.
It was invented in 1946 by accident. Percy Spencer was the inventor.
The first biological computer was the human brain. It wasn't so much invented as evolved. One of the earliest analog computers, the abacus, can be dated to around 2700-2300BCE…. However, one of the most complex analog computers for its time must be the Antikythera mechanism, which is reckoned to date from around 100BCE. Nothing that comes close to its level of complexity appeared for another 1500 years. However, Charles Babbage's 1822 proposal which led to his design of Difference Engine No.2 pushed the boundaries of complexity beyond anything that had come before. So much so that Babbage is now credited as being a father of the computer. Even though he never completed construction of his designs beyond some simple protypes, a working model was completed 1991 which proved his designs were well within the tolerances expected of the period. However, it is only fair to say that Johann Helfrich von Müller deserves some credit as he conceived the idea of a difference engine in 1786, but lacked funding to pursue the idea further. Sorry, but the Abacus is a digital computing aid not an analog computer.
