Very Interesting Tech Trivia Question
Posted 30 May 2010 - 08:34 AM
Now, don't google to find the answer! I would be really interested to know if techie type people readily know the answer to this question:
What Industrial Revolution Era Machine was the forerunner to Computer Technology (basically, because it was the first Machine to use a form of binary code)?[/font]
I'll comeback later today and give the answer. I am really curious to see how many of us techies know the answer to this question (I didn't know). Again, please don't look the answer up, as I want honest feedback. Honor system.

1804 - Joseph-Marie Jacquard invents an automated loom which uses punched cards to reproduce complex patterns.
However, I guess the very first forerunner to computer technology was the abacus, which was invented in about 3000 B.C.
