These Photos of Early Computers Are Almost Unrecognizable

On February 15, 1946 the world’s first computer was created: a colossal machine whose sole purpose was to solve numerical equations. Generations later, we’ve got control of boundless information through smartphones in the palms of our hands.

UK photographer James Ball recently visited the National Museum of Computing to capture the museum’s extensive collection of the first computer technologies in human history. The result: a retrospective series of old relics of the past; produced by production agency INK, each photo has been digitally retouched to present each item in its original form, thus transforming archaic technologies into contemporary sculptures.
