A once leading edge computer called the CSIRAC, which is claimed to be the first computer in the world to play music, is on its last legs in an Australian museum — like Mageek it’s pegging out.



The machine was built in 1949, weighs a few tons, and consumed enough electricity to light up a street.



The machine was the fourth computer to be built anywhere in the world, ran at 0.001MHz, and had a massive 2000 bytes of memory and a behemothic 2500 bytes of storage.



And it’s still running, now safe in the Melbourne Museum, in Australia.
