For example, Harvard physics professor Howard Aiken with IBM built and designed  the Harvard Mark 1 was a room-sized, relay-based calculator which was one of the most recognized computers built in the history of Computers.

IBM has changed all this, when they just announced about world’s smallest computer at IBM Think 2018 conference this week.

It has the has the power of an x86 chip making it strong enough to run the original Doom game which requires 4MB RAM.

It also consists 10 Lakh transistors, a photo detector.

For power it has a photo-voltaic cell.

The most amazing fact is its price. It is claimed by IBM that the production cost is less than 10 cents which  is really unbelievable!

So what more you can expect?
