EAI 180 Analog Computer

physical object

This analog computer is built in Australia, presumably in 1972. This computer performs complex calculations in a 'parallel' manner unlike other calculators at the time. Thus, it was used to solve complex engineering problems by university students. One could say that this computer is one of the earliest programmable calculator.
