The world’s oldest computer has been found in a shipwreck! This amazing discovery was made by a team of researchers from the University of Warsaw, who were investigating a shipwreck from the early 19th century.
The computer, which is made of brass and iron, was found in the wreckage of the HMS Terror, a British ship that was part of the Franklin expedition to find the Northwest Passage. The shipwreck was discovered in 2016 in the Arctic Ocean.
The computer is an analog device that was used to calculate the ship’s position. It was operated by a handle that was turned by the ship’s navigator. The device is thought to have been made in the late 18th century.
This is an incredible discovery that sheds new light on the history of computing. The world’s oldest computer is a fascinating glimpse into the past and provides us with a new understanding of the technological advances of the early 19th century.
