Computers must be Robots

Due to many ages of countless battles of superiority over inferiority, something new was to surely sprout out from the equation of things. Number crunching was definitely at its all time high for the number crunchers, and mathematical masterminds, and so a whole new wave of creations we’re due to emerge which all began as bright ideas, such as the wheel, the candle stick, and the firearm or good ole pistol.

Some ideas on the other hand we’re to fall short of their longevity, but one thing’s for certain when the mention of autonomous motion hit the stage, everything was to rapidly accelerate for humanity. The age of Machines had arrived, and primarily our focus of discussion here in this hub is going to be the significance of one very important machine precisely and that is the computer.

Computers were once made of wood, the actual first computer was also a number cruncher of sorts, and was used to keep count as in the form of a bankers machine, where a bunch of wooden balls were used to slide across a metallic surface of sorts, and was known as the Abacus.So the game of taking count began this way pretty much, and actually stemmed into many types of much more advanced forms of number keeping. (Calculators & Cash Registers)

Imagine the computer that runs this bad boy - The Hadron Collider - Which chambers the Higgs Boson, also known by the nick name "The God Particle"


The Metallic Mind

Once the actual usage of metals, and molding became a main stay for scientist, metallurgist and industrialist, there was definitely going to come a day when mankind would alternatively turn towards the whole usage of such, to eventually take the pecking order thing to a whole new level.

The birth of machines has truly lead us to automation in a huge way, with assembly lines cranking out the first of many products, not purely made by mankind's hands, but by the back bone of a greater physical might.

Mechanisms we’re crafted with the sharpest of angles, and angular shapes over time, and mold upon mold yielded even far better looking machines, until people began to figure out ways to harness such a thing as electricity, and to eventually craft an even greater tool of sorts that could do the counting for them at a much more alarming rate.

The greatest scientific Minds - We give praise!

Thanks to many great scientists, and mathematicians like Einstein, Sir Isaac Newton, Copernicus, Robert Boyle, Nikola Tesla, George Westinghouse, Thomas Edison, little ole Benjamin Franklin (Remember, when he discovered electricity) and countless others, the actual day would come when Circuitry was born, and boy it was a day to never forget.

Without the redirecting of such things as alternating current (AC ), or direct current (DC ), there wouldn’t even be a such thing as computers, iPhones, iPads, all other mobile gadgets like Google's Android phones. This momentous error in man-made time, brought about great innovations, and became known as the true foundation of autonomous motion, which was named the computer age.

Now any school subject such as mathematics for instance, could be taught to children, adults, and students of all ages, using colorful light displays on a rectangular screen, and the complete restructuring of all societies, as well as social orders was inevitable in due time thereafter.

Computing has turned things around entirely, and into a much newer form of numerical digitized way we all perceive the world to be, and also known as the digital era. Who would have thought that humanity would someday bow down to that of the 1 and the 0 (Digital high or low voltage readings), but reality has always been stricken with such irony.

Entering the Digital Era

Binary is the title of a coded system in which computer manufacturers would someday discover, to be used as a pattern of how to conduct the redisplay of light beams as was done with the cathode ray tube, and the vacuum tube, using that of electricity as its trigger. Digital data would become its new thrown and title once they figured out how to create semi-conductive materials, and first the capacitor, which pretty much allotted for the storage of voltages (Stored up energy of a difference of potential, read in volts or microvolts, or in laymans terms stored electrical energy).

Transistors would come much later in the game, which actually brought the rise of high speed digital switching of electrical pulses, and the ultimate purpose of a micro-circuit, as well as the usage of relays on the microchip level as well. All of this high technical stuff was done all through out the years, simply to transpose energy of light into such symbols, and sinology that humans had once etched onto walls and onto tablets, then books, pictures, paintings, and the likes for such competitive wagering of this whole numbers game. So, today we bear witness to this new technological reality on the Internet, which itself has actually lead humanity to a new global tech economy.

Now this is one futuristic looking Sexy robot, Wow!

Robots are here to stay!

Now we have arrived at a pivot point in time, where the rise of the machines has dawned on us all. Robots themselves have been etched into existence from the very computers that had changed the way humanity controlled such given systems, they had crafted together for automated motions to commence.

Robotics are here and now, they're truly ready to take full precedence over all things physical, an let’s hope that humanity gets a far better grip on the whole control thing, and doesn’t lose its hold on playing ruler of our earth dominion we’ve staked claim to as a species. Knowing that a new sheriff is in town, and he's built to last with some pretty tough skin, of metal and impenetrable grades of steel.

      Thanks Flashmakeit, I did my best on this one and since its a highly technical subject I tried my best to dumb it down a bit, which may help the average person get to try it out as well. I'm so happy you liked it.

      I thought this was a superior article. How do you constantly write intelligent subjects so well. You are as impressive as some of these new inventions you wrote about.

      Thank you @remaniki, for checking out my cool technology hub here, I don't write many of them, but when I do I try to give it my all, and I'm happy you like it.

      Also thanks for the cool vote, and for sharing with others, that was truly kind of you to do for me.

      Hi CloudExplorer,

      Am glad I found this hub. Loved it for its simplicity and great information. Truly amazing. Voted up and sharing it across for the benefit of our hubber friends. Cheers, Rema

      Yup yup, I seen that movie Josh, that movie was really cool. Freaking artificial intelligence I guess is the next and final thing Robots will actually need to defeat their masters, and or creators, lol.

      Thanks man for being one of the first to spread the love for my hub here.

      I owe you and Bill both in a huge way, and my hub reading day is almost here, so I will try to play catch up when it indeed does come, until then speak to you both soon.

      Thanks Bill, I just recently finished editing it, and I hope I caught the last of my grammatical errors, misplaced words and all.

      Yikes it tough with this sort of writing volume of words I've been publishing, but its all good you know.

      Thanks man for keeping up with my pace somewhat I cannot even keep up with anyone actually, I been so occupied with writing all day long pretty much, but its definitely worth it in the long run I'm sure of it.

      Very informative hub my friend! I agree with Bill, you made this clear and easy to read, excellent job and presentation! I also have to add that I couldn't stop thinking of the move "I, Robot" Have you seen that movie with Will Smith?

      You have a gift of being able to take a complicated topic and dumbing it down for those of us who find technology challenging. I mean that will all sincerity, Mike! This is a wonderful hub that if filled with tech information and yet easy to understand.

      You have a great writing voice....the "you" stands out loud and clear when you write.

      Excellent job brother!
