An exhibit that demonstrates what it was like to programme one of the first computers has won an award for the best computer conservation project.

 

The award-winning interactive project recreates part of Eniac – the Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer.

The massive machine built from 18,000 valves and 1,500 relays first ran a program in February 1946.

The exhibit was created at the Heinz Nixdorf Museum Forum (HNF) in Germany.
