Lets get things started, this is week 3 the last of this. This week I will tell you the first of most things we deal with in daily life.

1. The first computer

The ENIAC was invented by J. Presper Eckert and John Mauchly.. Construction began in 1943 and was not completed until 1946. It occupied about 1,800 square feet and used about 18,000 vacuum tubes, weighing almost 50 tons. Sounds complicated, next time you complain about Youtube buffering remember at one time this was a thing.

 

2.The first gun

​Imagine a mini-gun and a coke as you shoot 30 bullets a second at nothing, astonishing right? Well that's not what this is, the first gun is known as "fire lance" made in china a spear of bamboo full of gunpowder. The earliest fire lances were spear-like weapons combining a tube containing gunpowder and projectiles tied to a spear. when fired the charge ejected a small projectile or poison dart along with the flame. These fire lances had a range of only a few feet so not quite sniper material. Being a weapon that combines with a spear, it was initially used as a hand-to-hand weapon with the gunpowder shot designed to give the wielder an edge in close-quarter combat.

3.The first car

The first vehicle to move under its own power for which there is a record was designed by Nicholas Joseph Cugnot and constructed by M. Brezin in 1769. A second unit was built in 1770 which weighed 8000 pounds and had a top speed on 2 miles per hour and on the cobble stone streets of Paris this was probably as fast as anyone wanted to go it. The first model on its first drive around Paris were it hit and knocked down a stone wall. It also had a tendency to tip over frontward unless it was counterweighted with a canon in the rear. the purpose of the vehicle was to haul canons around town.

4. the first pair of glasses

The inventor of the first spectacle lenses is unknown. Roman tragedian Seneca is said to have used a glass globe of water as a magnifier to read ''all the books of Rome''. It's been reported that monks in the middle ages used glass spheres as magnifying glasses to read. The 13th century Venetians glass blowers are known to have produced reading stones made of solid glass that was put into hand-held, single lens-type frames made of horn or wood. These reading stones were similar to hand-held magnifying lenses of today.

 

5. The first book.'

.The oldest book in the Western Hemisphere still in existence is a Maya fig bark manuscript, believed to have been written in the 13th century AD. It is called the Dresden Codex, named for the city it was founded in.
