Computer (Mayor graphic novel, s1, p75)


We need to turn again to the Islamic contemporaries of Mayor and Alphonso to find a medieval ‘computer’ or computation device – the astrolabe and the torquetum.

Islamic engineers were also responsible for wonderful automata. The castle clock (1206), made by Ismail Al-Jazari, is considered the first programmable analog computer.
