Nam I searched and found one similar to the one you posted.Now I understand what you told me about.
Thank You.
Computers look like something new, but technically they have been around since 1833. Charles Babbage, a British mathematician and mechanical engineer, came up with the idea of ??a computer (or "Difference Engine," as he called it at the time) while in Cambridge. At the time, the project was basically a calculator that weighed about 15 tons, made up of 25,000 different parts. The British government invested £ 1,700 in this plan, but apparently that was not enough, as Babbage never completed a working prototype. However, in 1989, modern engineers built their own version of Babbage's computer based on his notes, and the old computer remains on display at the Museum of the History of Science in Oxford.


I will attempt to post photo if I'm able to.
