ENIAC on Public Display Again

After years of being hidden from public view, a big portion of the ENIAC has been restored and is on public displays again. Even though the set isn't complete, and there are some doubts about the quality of the restoration, this is nevertheless exiting news.

The exhibit is on display at the Field Artillery Museum in Fort Sill, Oklahoma.

Read the full story on Wired. (A side note: Dear Wired, no matter how often you repeat it, ENIAC is the world's first fully electronic computer, not the world's first computer in general - depending on the definition, that honour goes to the Zuse Z3, the Colossus, or even the ABC.)
