They have revolutionized the way we work, play, travel, and communicate, touching every part of our lives. They have helped win wars, solve seemingly insoluble problems, and launch us into space.

Yet the age of the computer hasn't even begun, according to one quantum scientist. Join MODERN MARVELS as it traces the history and ongoing evolution of the computer. Visit Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, home of world's most powerful computer--IBM's ASCI White--and trace its origins, from an English scientist who created a counting machine to the first room-sized computers to today. Myriad interviews with technological gurus and computer historians--including Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak--shed light on the digital revolution and the molecular computers of the future.

From counting machines to quantum mechanics, COMPUTERS presents the definitive exploration into the fast-paced world of technology and innovation.
