Beautiful Technology: The Difference Engine

A Thing of Beauty

Babbage Difference Engine No. 2 built at the Science Museum, London, on display at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California.

I recommend the book “The Difference Engine: Charles Babbage and the Quest to Build the First Computer” by Doron Swade.
