Computers in the 1960s were huge, heavy machines that took up entire rooms in air-conditioned buildings. (Think of rows and rows of refrigerators filling up a hall)Expanded AnswerIn the sixties, computers were huge, but more huge (huger?) than the previous answer allows. Catch "A Touch Of Mink" on TMC or AMC some time. (Stars Doris Day and Cary Grant; MARVELOUS!) You'll see a fair representation of a "computerized" business of the day. Keep in mind that the machines that Doris Day sabotages, the ones that malfunction, are merely terminals; they're just card readers, and the actual computers are in many more cabinets spread all over the building. Additional ExpansionLarge computers looked like rooms full of lockers, som had glass/acrylic doors behind which you could see tape drives (reels of magnetic tape that rotated jerkily to get to the data on the tape).
There were very few small computers but one was the Olivetti Programma 101 (Google that to find pictures of it) a desktop computer that looked like a cross between a calculator and a typewriter.
Super old and not worth looking at. If you have ever seen Terminator 3, at the end it shows some pretty old computers, if you look at those then you get the idea.

Yes they all do! but not in the 1960s:)
integrated circuit computer or microprocessor
It would look like a hard drive for most other computers.
Because of dramatic improvements in computer components and manufacturing, personal computers do more than the largest computers of the mid-1960s at a fraction of the cost.
At this time, no, most computers are digital. However from the 1930s through the 1960s analog computers probably did outnumber digital computers as they were generally smaller and less expensive than digital computers.
Sort of like the one your looking at right now. but not all computers look the same some are thicker some are flat screen. but other can be smaller or very large.
Most computers will be wireless and touch screen...especially the tablet computers will be the most popular devices. The Androids tablets rules.
They were huge and took a whole building to fit in.
it is called satisfaction, and it is on most computers:)
No one. The computer didn't come out until the late 1960s. NOT the 1950s. Even then, in the 1960s the computers were referred to as mainframes, and the PC computer (like what we use today) didn't come out until the early 1980s.
Many cars, buses and trains in the 1960s looked very futuristic. This was a current trend at the time, as science fiction and the advancement of technology were very popular.
search google it contains processor and ram like normal computers
All computers were mainframe computers until the middle 1960s when early ICs with 2 to 4 gates per chip made filing cabinet sized minicomputers possible.
They were huge, taking up the space of several rooms, ran on vacuum tubes, very expensive and your modern PC is several thousand times more powerful.
From the outfits and the look of the story it looks like it could be between the years of 1950-1960s.
It depends on what you mean like that. Robots can do a lot of what humans do, and some people consider them computers because they don't have flesh and organs. But computers in a way do what humans do, like finding information in the internet world is like us finding information in our brains. It just depends on how you look at it.
With how technology is advancing is very much like you have seen in the movies. They are probably going to be like holograms.
