IBM SSEC, 1948

Der IBM Selective Sequence Electronic Calculator (SSEC), auch Poppa genannt, war ein Hybridcomputer aus 12.500 Röhren sowie 21.400 mechanischen Relais, der im IBM-Hauptquartier in Manhattan stand.

Eine seiner wichtigsten Aufgaben war die Berechnung der Mondpositionen für die Mondlandungen des Apollo-Programms. Jede Position erforderte 11.000 Additionen und Subtraktionen, 9.000 Multiplikationen und 2.000 Suchanfragen an eine Datenbank.

Dieter Rams | AisleOne - 20100508

Snip: [...] There’s the “Less and More — The Design Ethos of Dieter Rams” exhibit at the Design Museum in London. To coincide with the event, a book with the same name will be released by Gestalten this month which features all of Rams’ products as well as selected sketches and models. They also have a video interview with Rams on their website. The excellent design agency Bibliotheque has created two stunning posters dedicated to Rams’ legacy. The first, which is pictured here, is titled “Dieter Rams’ Ten Principles” and features his ten principles for good design. They were commissioned by Vitsœ to create the poster, which is currently available on their site. The second lovely poster they designed is titled “Dieter Rams T1000″ and features an illustration of the Braun T1000 shortwave receiver. It will be screen printed and should be available this week. And finally we have the retrospective book “BRAUN – Fifty Years of Design and Innovation” that celebrates 50 years of the Braun brand. The book is slated to be released in 2010 but you can pre-order it now through Amazon. [...] cf. with
