Blaise Pascal is often credited with invented the first calculator type machine around 1641. For more info see the following website: http://inventors.about.com/library/inventors/blpascal.htm Although a slide rule which is a more primative type of calculating machine was invented by a guy named W. Oughtred in 1632.
