I did a little research and found the first personal computer was called, "Simon" (not to be confused with the popular game). It was developed by Edmund Berkeley. He first wrote about the idea in his book, "Giant Brains, or Machines That Think," published in 1949. The construction of the machine was conducted mostly by, William A. Porter and Robert A. Jensen. The purpose of the machine was to create a mechanical brain that could create interest for others to make more creations of its kind. The machine could perform some functions like a calculator addition and subtraction. Source: http://www.blinkenlights.com/pc.shtml
