When and by whom was the first home computer invented?
The Altair 8800, from Micro Instrumentation Telemetry Systems (MITS) of Albuquerque, NM, was first featured in the January 1975 edition of Popular Electronics. 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) represented several innovations in computing, including a binary system of arithmetic, parallel processing, regenerative memory, and a separation of memory and computing functions.
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.
Charles Babbage is commonly credited with the invention of the programmable computer, while Ada Lovelace is commonly credited as the inventor of the first computer programming language (called "Ada" after the inventor). Depending on the precise meaning of your question, either one of these two people are likely whom you are looking for.
Depends on the History... Anceint times the computer was invented before the telephone. These computers were primative with a complex series of gears. The Chinese were the first to create this type of engineering marvol. The Phone wasn't evented until the late 19th century during the time of Alexander Gram Bell whom I believe designed the first telaphone. But during these times there were computers that were not very efficient. Thus the phone was no…
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 to 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…
