Electronics wizard J. Presper Eckert, along with his partner John Mauchly, co-invented the first electronic calculating machine. What was this machine called?

Correct answer:
  • ENIAC

Incorrect answers:
  • Mark I
  • UNIVAC
  • Cray I

Interesting Info:
  • The ENIAC (Electrical Numerical Integrator and Computer) was developed in 1948 by Mauchly and Eckert, a giant super-computing machine (at least, super-computing for that time) which was to be used by the U. S. military during World War II. Unfortunately for the military, the machine was developed too late, but it represented a remarkable leap in technology for humankind. The 30 ton ENIAC was one of the first electronic computers ever developed (just two years after Howard Aiken's 'Mark I') and helped spur on the great computer technology race.
