From the ABC (First digital electronic computer) named after it's creators John V Atansoff and Clifford Berry to the fictional Multivac written about by the great science fiction author Isaac Asimov there is a lot of development that would need to take place. We started the first computer revolution with vacuum tubes and switches using the concepts of binary arithmetic and logic, progress to integrated circuits and chips, and push modern silicon limitations beyond today's 5 GHz peak. Here we approach the possible saturation limitation of Moore's law (double number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit every 18 months). If we reach the limitation in modern manufacturing techniques we would theoretically slow the rapid advancements in computer technology and probably never build ...
