History of computer

Many years ago, people used their fingers and toes in counting. They also used stones, pebbles and cowries. Sometimes, seeds of plants like the palm kernel were also used in counting. When many things had to be counted, people could no longer use their fingers andtoes, or stones, pebbles, cowries, sticks and seeds in counting, and then the computer was invented, and was made as a counting machine.
