When was the first computer console made?
The first electronic programmable computer was made by British Post Office engineers in 1942/1943 at Bletchley Park in the UK. It was made to break the Enigma (and other codes) used by the German armed forces during world war two.
OK, I don't know what idiot said the N64 was the first console and frankly I don't care. Now, then. The first console ever, was also the first videogame ever. The "Tennis for Two" (not to be confused with Pong) was released in 1958 by William Higinbotham. The game was actually made from radar equipment.
The first electronic computer was made at Iowa State University, but, alas, it could not be reprogrammed. The "Z" computer was made in Germany, and was the first to be reprogrammable. The British Colossus computer was made at Bletchley Park, UK, but the first general-purpose reprogrammable computer, called ENIAC, was made at the University of Pennsylvania in 1946.
