    Hah, I like how they had to include "not used for social media or playing games" in the article.

    Good read though. And it did look very modern (from the appearance of the replica anyway).

      I thought I read Konrad Curze at first glance. Now I'm feeling let down that this is not a thread about the Night Haunter.

        Zuse had some interesting ideas. Like the self replicating assembly line:

        or the Helix Tower:

        His "Rechnender Raum" was the basis for digital physics. Simply put: The universe can be described through information and is a giant computer itself

        He also produced the first plotter the Graphomat Z64
