Brief History of the Typewriter :

You should know what a keyboard is. Its something that you type words with. I wouldn't be writing this without it. It has all the letters of the alphabet and more. It definitely changed the world.

History
It all started with the typewriter. It was made by Christopher Latham Sholes. It was a device that had a keyboard that would print words out on paper. It had the letters in alphabetical order. Make sense right? But do to some letters being next to each other that were commonly used would get jammed. So they made a new keyboard. It was called the QWERTY keyboard. That's what we still use today.

The first computer keyboard was made when computers started to come out. In 1946 when the first computer came out was when the first computer keyboard was made. It was called the ENIAC. It took up a whole room, over 100 times bigger than the modern day laptop. In the 1970's the keyboards were as heavy to carry as the computer itself.

How it changed the world
If the keyboard or the typewriter were never invented then I wouldn't be writing this and i don't even think computers would really exist. If they did exist they would be a lot different than they are today. I think the keyboard is one of the most important inventions in computer history.
