First mass-produced computer turns 50

It has now been 50 years since the first mass-produced computer, Univac, was sold. At that time the first piece went to the American Census Office.

As early as 1952, he 'proved himself' as he predicted the outcome of the presidential election between Eisenhower and Stevenson by projections. At that time the 'Universal Automatic Computer' not only needed an entire hall because of its construction from tubes, but also the electricity of an entire district. The good piece was sold 46 times at a price of 1 to 1.5 million dollars. These numbers previously stood for 'mass production'. Even then, paperless offices were assumed that were only equipped with computers. However, this has not yet been achieved despite the fact that the performance has been multiplied. But today a bug is no longer a real insect like it used to be.
