ENIAC plus 60
: Nice series on the very first computers. "
The scientists knew that they had created something that would change history
but they weren't sure how to convey their breakthrough to the public.
So they painted numbers on some light bulbs and screwed the resulting
"translucent spheres" into ENIAC's panels. Dynamic, flashy lights would thereafter be associated with the computer in the public mind." 12:54:05 PM
