Charles Babbage's Difference Engine No. 2

Picture taken at the "Maker Faire 2008" (San Mateo, CA) - a collection of creative, weird, and sometimes useless (but always interesting) inventions, exhibits and art performances. Check out the other pictures in this set.




The Computer History Museum will provide Maker Faire attendees with a preview to its much-anticipated exhibit opening in May, Charles Babbage’s Difference Engine No. 2. The Mountain View-based Museum is where computing history lives and is home to one of the largest international collections of computing artifacts in the world.
