First computers found

2,000 year old 'computer' discovered: How tech and shipwrecks are rewriting human history

There has been some amazing discoveries made in underwater shipwrecks. Some of these discoveries are literally changing the annals of history each day.

Aboard one shipwreck there is a metal disc that was discovered that had some amazing properties. It is considered to be one of the first computers ever built. Not all of its pieces have been found to date but there is hope that it will be found soon.

This computer is thought to have been built in the second year BCE. This is truly exciting and could be the basis for great fictional stories and movies, in my opinion. Check out the article above in Tech Republic. It is a long article but well worth the read.
