A computer is a programmed device with output or input devices interconnected with a processor. It is able to run numeric and programmed operations in a logical manner. The history of computer dates back in 1871, where a mathematician, philosopher, and a mechanical engineer Charles Babbage introduced the concept of a programmable computer.
Analog computers were the initial form of computers. They were not programmed and information was put in mechanically. As the industrial revolution took place it could not meet the market demand on the provision of accuracy and flexibility that was required by the current market trends.
In the 1950s, digital computers came into place to solve the challenges of the analog computers. Although some sectors, for example, education and aviation still use the analog technology to carry out its operations. They used electromagnetic component characterized by the latest version of the analog computers. This brought about a more complicated computer that could be pre and programmed to carry out its functions effectively.
The modern computers combine the use of transistors, integrated circuits and stored programs for its operations. This is the concept currently use, though in different versions and sizes of the computers. A computer has the input, output and processing unit component all inclusive one device. All these constitute the physical component (hardware). The software is the programs stored and installed in them for various functions.
Long ago, the sizes of the computers were large and bulky; to curb the challenges, smaller and simpler computers were invented up to the current ones which are the smart phones. The order of invention was desktops, laptops, palmtops and laptops and smartphones
History of Video games
A video game is an electronic component for games with communication between a computer device and human through an interface for visual presentation. The history of video games dates back in the 1950s with the invention of the digital computers and Televisions. It was not popular with the general public until the 1980s.
Video games have revolved for up to the current 8th generation. The first to the third generation used the idea of mainframe computers and video arcades through TVs. The third up to the sixth generation incorporated the use of hand held LCD games,hence the popular name video game crash. The seventh and the eighth generation used the concept of WI console. The current generation is a product of both the TVs and computers. It moved from play stations to cloud computing through smart phones and mobile games.
