The Difference Engine

Charlie believed that the future would be powered by steam, and he and his inventor, Joseph Clement had been working on a binary computing device, that they named “the difference engine”.

It worked using coded cards, and computed “differences” between “zeros” and “ones” Charlie believed that this “computer” as he called it, would come to dominate the world over the next century, and that it would make him rich one day.

Unfortunately Charlie perished in the great fire and Joseph's body was never found, So they never got to see what the future was to become.

Will you be a hero or a zero as you walk into THE DIFFERENCE ENGINE
