Who invented the first mechanical computer?
The first mechanical computing machine was invented in Greece
circa 100 BC: It was used for navigation. it was called the
It is remains unknown as to the origins and dating of the first mechanical computers. For example by definition the Abacus is mechanical and can perform computations. It has been around and remains used for the past thousands of years. The Abacus and the archeological discovery of the Greek computer remain with unknown inventors.

O.C.A.BARIPADA Computers weren't discovered, they were invented. In its most basic understanding, computers were invented thousands of years ago by the Chinese, however that is clearly not the case for electronic
the first known computer, a mechanical analog computer, was invented and built circa 100BC the first digital computer, a programmable mechanical decimal computer, was invented circa 1840 but never built the first electronic digital computer, an electronic binary computer, was invented circa 1936 and built in 1942. it was dismantled later that year the first programmable electronic digital computer, was invented in 1943 and 11 of them in 2 different models were built between 1944…
The first computer (a mechanical analog computer) is believed to have been invented circa 100BC by Archimedes. The first digital computer (a mechanical computer) was invented about 1837 by Charles Babbage. The first electronic digital computer was invented in 1937 by John Vincent Atanasoff. The first integrated circuit (a hybrid device) was invented between 1949 and 1951 independently by Werner Jacobi, Geoffrey W. A. Dummer, and several others; however the first working units had to…
The oldest calculator, the abacus, was invented in ancient Egypt(unknown date). The first Mechanical calculator, known as the Calculating clock, was invented by Willhelm Schickard in 1623. The first electronic desktop calculator were announced by the Bell Punch Co, in Uxbridge England in 1961. Finally, the first handheld computer was invented in 1980.
The first computer, the abacus, dates back to 2700 - 2300 BC*. The first modern computer was invented in 1936**. Related Information: * Evidence of this early abacus, binary and mechanical, was found in the ancient city of Sumer, Mesopotamia (now Baghdad, Iraq). The inventor is not known. ** Initially, in 1936, Konrad Zuse (1910 - 1955), a German Engineer, designed and constructed a programmable, mechanical computer that used binary code. Then in 1941 he…
