History of Calculators » Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibniz

Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibniz (1646~1716)

Leibniz constructed the first mechanical calculator capable of multiplication and division. He also developed the modern form of the binary numeral system, used in digital computers. Some have speculated that it may be interesting to consider what might have resulted from Leibniz combining his findings in binary arithmetic with those developments he made in mechanical calculation.
