At MIT, researchers began experimenting with a direct keyboard entry to computers, a precursor to the normal mode of operation today. Typically, Computer users feed their programs on the Computer using perforated cards or Paper tape. Doug Ross wrote a memo that advocates for direct access in February. Ross maintains that the Flexowriter-automatically control the typewriter-connected to the MIT Computer could work as a keyboard input device because of its low cost and flexibility. An Experiment performed five months later on the MIT Whirlwind Computer confirmed how useful and convenient keyboard entry device could be. TX-0 is the first general purpose programmable Computer built with transistors. For easy replacement, designers place each transistor circuit inside a bottle, similar to a vacuum tube. Build MITAs Lincoln Laboratory, TX-0 moved to the MIT Electronics Research lab, where it hosted some early imaginative testing of programming, including the writing of Western movie shows in television, 3-D tic-tac-toe, and the maze in which the mouses find martinis and become increasingly inebriated. The Era of magnetic disk storage dawns with the IBMAs shipping of the rama 305 Computer system to Zellerbach Paper in San Francisco. The Computer was based on the new hard disk drive worldas first. The RAMAC disk drive consists of 50 magnetically coated metal discs capable of storing about 5 million data characters. RAMAC allows real-time random access to large amounts of data, unlike magnetic tape or drill cards. The work RAMAC hard disk assembly is regularly demonstrated at the Computer History Museum. Robby Robot appears in the 1956 film of MGMas star Forbidden Planet. In the film, Robby was the creation of Dr. Mobius and was built to the specifications found in an alien Computer system.

Nobel Prizes

All the effort made during those years by the team atA Bell Labs was later recognized when three won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1956. There is a curious anecdote about Bardeen: when the King Gustaf VI Adolf of Sweden was presenting the Nobel Prize, he asked Bardeen about his family; Bardeen replied that he had traveled to the awards ceremony with just one of his three children because the other two were studying at Harvard University and didn ' t want them to disrupt their studies for motive like this. King was speechless at this response, and told Bardeen that if they ever saw again, he would make him bring his entire family so he could meet them; they enthusiastically agree, and they kept their promise 16 years later. In fact, we also owe Bardeen athis time together with Leon N. Cooper andA John R. Schrieffer's theory of superconductivity, a phenomenon that the scientific community has been baffling over four decades. For this second achievement, he also received the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1972, and is the only scientist to have received the Physics award twice. At the awards ceremony for the second award, Bardeen brought all their children so they could meet the King, thus fulfilling the promise he had made 16 years earlier.
