Artefact 39

computer
A diorama depicting the very first computer machine, along with it’s creator A. Turin in the year 01. Built ontop mount Kyllini in modern day Greece. The location of the construction was chosen because of it’s cooling effect on the “thinking machine”.
This early proto computer was able to do simple calculations and show brief glimpses of a digital ideaworld.
Turin himself wears his famous anti-elektra rubber apron. All members of his project team were outfitted with the very first examples of rubber boots to protect the from the machines natural ability to spew out lightning.
After Turin’s death the titanic machine was hollowed out and used as a sarcophagus for his body and earthly possessions.
