Evolution of Computers
Transcript of Evolution of Computers
The First Functional Computer
This interesting computer was created by Konrad Zuse in his parents living room in 1936 to 1938 and is convinced to be the first electro-mechanical binary programmable (modern) computer and really the first functional computer.
What Computers Are Used For
Computers are used for a variation of things. The most common uses for the computer are browsing the web, listening to music, researching, watching videos, playing games, advertising a business, calculating and mine crafting. The first computer could only produce a series of 0's and 1's!
How does the computer transmit data?
Data transmission, digital transmission, or digital communications is the physical transfer of data (a digital bit stream) over a point-to-point or point-to-multipoint communication channel. Examples of such channels are copper wires, optical fibres, wireless communication channels, and storage media. The data are represented as an electromagnetic signal, such as an electrical voltage, radiowave, microwave, or infrared signal.

Evolution of Computers
The First Personal Computer
The first personal computer was the Kenbak-1 created by John Blankenbaker. It was small compared to other computers. It was designed in 1971.
The Main Features
The computer's main features are for communication, sharing and obtaining information, and entertainment.
How Has It Changed?
The big bulky computer has changed very much over the years. It can do so much more now then before and big companies such as Apple keep making them thinner, more portable and more modern, who knows what the computer will be like in the future!
Pro's and Con's of the Computer
The computer has made it very easy for people to research things for school, you can video chat people, and some children can do school on their computer if they are really sick. People have taken advantage of their computers and cyber bullied others. Some people commit suicide over cyber bullying. You can be tracked down if you put personal information on the web. If we used the computer right, nothing really bad would happen but some people just don't care. Even if you delete what you said on the computer it leaves a foot print that stays there FOREVER!
Smartphones, iPads, iPods, tablets and other things like that are capable of doing the things a computer can do. You can buy keyboards for iPads and tablets. I don't think the computer will go out of style because they keep getting better and in the future they will probably be able to teleport things and be transparent!!
Thank you for listening to my presentation! I hope you learned a lot about the evolution of computers!! Any Questions???
When was the first functional computer developed?
Who created it?
Where did he create it?

I got all of my information from ask.com and Wikipedia some of it I already knew which is why I chose computers for my project. I got all of my pictures from google images. My music is from iTunes.
