Greatest inventions - the Computer

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Invention of the computer Aleksandar Bukurecki I-1MYP The reason why I chose the invention of computers is because computers changed our lives a lot. Computer is something that almost everyone likes, because it adapts to you not you to him, you can do anything on it from putting your pictures and printing them out, playing games, chatting with people all over the world or even programming. It's your choice to decide what to do. I would say that computer needs some additional equipment to do what I mentioned; he has a lot of attachments (e.g. monitor, keyboard, mouse, printer, speakers, internet cable...). For me a computer without these things is not a computer. What impressed me the most is how fats the computer evolved. The evolution of computer is so fast in past decades. From a whole room to a small box and from a black screen with green pixels to a full colored thin screen, from a green blinking cursor to enormous high quality games, sound effects, printing, internet and a lot other things. ...read more.

However, sometimes people would rather stay home in front of the computer then going out with friends and family. Computers do have a bad affect on your health, staring at the screen for a long time can damage your eyes and sitting inappropriate can cause pain in your back and neck. As well as all the obvious negative effects mentioned, computers must have had a bit of a positive effect on the environment. In relation to the general energy usage of the average person, computers use very little energy, compared to home heating, driving cars. If you generated energy for your home using non-environmentally damaging source like hydro electric, or wind turbines, it would have no damaging effect except for whatever energy was used in its manufacture and transport to your house. Before computers more paper was used and wasted a lot more often. Many trees were cut down that could have been save if there have been computers. ...read more.

Conclusion

The computers help scientists communicate with each other, also there are some special programs only made for scientific purposes. Computers are used for making new items, first they can use computers to design the product, in modern companies you can see computer programmed robots that help in making the product, and later, an ad on the internet can help selling the product. Computers boosted up the development of science. Computers have a big connection with H.I. First of all, the computer itself is a great invention. However, many gadgets are made only for the computer (e.g. laser mouse, keyboard, laptop, printer, CD-s, USB...). Computer is like a Lego board (the base) and the Lego blocks that are attached to the board are the gadgets and they all together make an incredible Lego house (team). There are a lot Lego blocks waiting to be a part of the house. GreenStar(GS) Lite is an example of a new more efficient generation of computers, it uses less energy than a typical computer. Computers can't be smarter then you but they can be faster. ...read more.
