Man first started counting on his fingers and toes. It is no coincidence that "digit" refers to body parts and numbers. Then came the first real computer, the Abacus. Designed to deal with larger numbers and a mechanical object. The Abacus is thought to have been invented by the ancient Babylonians between 1000 BC and 500 BC.
