1st Generation Computer 1942-1955
Here is what the first generation of computers looked like.
Here is what a fifth generation computer will look like.
5th Generation Computer

The 6 Generations of Computers
By Taylor Moody
Here is what a third generation computer looked like.
3rd Generation Computer 1964- 1975
4th Generation Computer 1975-Now
Here is what a fourth generation computer looked like.
Here is what I think the sixth generation of computers will look like,
6th Generation Computer
The first generation of computers were called the UNIVAC (Universal Automatic Computer). These computers were based on vacuum tubes. Some advantages to these computers were that they could work out data in milliseconds and having vacuum tubes help make digital computers. Some disadvantages to these computers were that they were very slow and they were not portable like the laptops we have now.
This generation of computers used transistors. The size of the computer decreased due to taking out the vacuum tubes and replacing them with transistors. Two advantages to this computer was that it was smaller in size compared to the first generation and it was more reliable. Two disadvantages was that a cooling system was required and so was constant maintenance.
In the third generation of computers, they started to use integrated circuits (IC). The IC chip was smaller in size, more reliable, faster and less expensive. Some advantages to this generation is that it was smaller in size and it was more reliable compared to the other generations. Some disadvantages are that an air conditioning was required when using it, and they needed highly sophisticated technology when making the IC Chips.
Here is what I think the 6th Generation Computer will look like. I think it will be like a desk that we work on, but when we press buttons we can plug in a USB, put in a CD, put in headphones etc. An advantage is that it is faster, more reliable, faster and it can hold a lot of information. But the disadvantage is that it is not portable.
In this new generation they had the new invention of Microprocessors. And there are thousands of Microprocessors in an IC chip. Some advantages for this generation is that it is smaller in size and it has less need to be repaired. Some disadvantages is that they needed the latest technology to create the Microprocessors.
Hi, this is my Prezi on the 6 Generations of Computers!
Scientists are working on the new generation and they plan to make it with different types of sensors. They will make it with a real IQ. An advantage is that it will be faster, smarter and more reliable. However, this will make people around the world stay at home and will not have a social life.
