Thank You For
Watching My
History Of A

By: Tanishk Nalamolu

Technology has been evolving since its first apparition. It has made human community to perform different tasks and make it simpiler
Laptop= Portable Computer
There are pros and Cons
to everything, so...
Nowadays we have a huge range of computers, which use different operating systems (O.S);
Collection of software
Control computer hardware resources
Provides services for programs.
What Is A Computer?
-electronic device for storing and processing data
- Conventionally, a computer consists of at least one processing element, typically CPU
-programmed to carry out a finite set of arithmetic or logical operations.
Nowadays We Think Of A Computer As A...
Scientific Definition
We Might Think All Computers Are like This but Technology changes Over The years, and technology was way different back then
All Computers Arent this Light, Portable and thin.
MacBook Air
Created By: Steve Jobs( Apple. Inc)
Windows 8
Stuff Never used to look this good, easy to work with and Organized
The Definition Of A "Computer" As we know it Changed In The Mid 2000's
Did You Know?
Nowadays we use it as a General All purpose System.

Before It used To be reffered to as amathematical Device
One Way How math Can lead To One of The Most Important Creations Of All Time
2600 BC
The Abacus Was an early Aid For Mathematical Computations. Its Only Value Is that it aids the memory of the human performing the calculation
Binary Systems
Leibnitz Creates the binary system of Counting Used at the Core Of Computer Systems
7 min video on HOW BINARY NUMBERS WORK, Helped me understand
What they are
Nice Hair, right
Trendy Fashion In
those days
It is used in many aspects of our lives like:
Home Tasks
The inventions of mechanical adding
machines and slide rules
First Generation Computers used Vacuum Tubes
These Computers were:
Could Only Solve
One Problem
At A Time
Used Machine
Language For
The second generation used transistors
Transistors made computers:
Konrad Zuse: Z Computer
More Energy Efficient
Also made computers to overheat, which would eventually damage the computer
He invented the pascaline to help his father count taxes as he was a tax collecter.The pascaline consisted of eight moveable dials that added up to eight figured long sums.
Created by: Blaise Pascal, A french mathematician at 18 years old
The first automatic calculating device.
Konrad Zuse Creations Of The computer
1936- Zuse creates the Z1, the first working digital and binary computer used it to explore several groundbreaking technologies in calculator development: floating-point arithmetic, high-capacity memory and modules or relays operating on the yes/no principle. Zuse's ideas
1939- Zuse completed the Z2, the first fully functioning electro-mechanical computer.
1941- Zuse compleed the Z3 This was the world's first electronic, fully programmable digital computer based on a binary floating-point number and switching system.
All of them are Basically the same design
The Eniac(Electronic numerical intergrator and computer) First general purpose stored-program electronic computer.It was made by John Mauchly and John Eckert.It was used in the army to calculate artillery.
Intel Creates its First Micro-Proccessor
The Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET),was the world's first operational packet switching network, the first network to implement TCP/IP, and the progenitor of what was to become the global Internet.
Faggin, Hoff & Mazor
All Computers nowadays
Use This.
The World's First Available Dynamic RAM Chip.
Intel 1103 Computer Memory
The First Consumer Computer
Scelbi & Mark-8 Altair & IBM 5100 Computers
The first GUI (graphical user interface)
personal computer wih a mouse.
Microsoft Launches Windows
A combination of pagemaker, Makintosh and laser printers begin desktop publishing revolution using personal computers.
Adam Osborne
Osborne 1
First Laptop
Founded Osborne Computers
Weighed 11kg(approx)
1,370 euros (approx)
Had a 12.7 cm screen
Collection Of bundelled
Software programs
Modem Port
Battery Pack
Mac OS X
Microsoft Windows
Most Common types of operating systems
Saves A ton of storage space, Imagine the waste of paper if all data was printed!
Improve our daily lives! Help us write all types of documents. Way better than the older generation Type writers. We dont have to worry about making mistakes
Computers can also calculate and process information faster than a human! Nowadays we can search up almost anything on the internet.
We can use it for liesure time and can be entertaining
Can be bad for our eyesight, the bright light for a long time can harm our eyes.
Can be a threat to young users there may be violent games and etc.
You can turn into a computer
addict. Which can be very addicted
Computers can break,
so your saved data can be lost.
Well our future will change drastically and be even more innovative with the new type of technologies.
Many companies are already trying to make their products ahead, for example: Apple claims that they are 2 years in the future
I think the future technology of a computer will have:
- Touch screen keyboard
- 3-D display
- Much more hands on
- Feeling the experience
From : 2600 BC- 2000+
