CSIRAC 1949-1964

The fourth computer in the world, CSIRAC (pronounced 'sigh-rack') was designed and built in Australia. It made its first successful test run in November 1949.

CSIRAC is derived from Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation Automatic Computer.

An international icon of the digital age, CSIRAC is the only intact first-generation computer surviving anywhere in the world.
