Konrad Zuse rebuilt the Z3 at his Zuse KG company between 1960 and 1961 (Fig.25) in order to demonstrate the performance of this machine to justify his patents and to show the world his creation (and also to demonstrate the machine for advertising purposes).

His work on the Z3 (1944), the first tape stored program controlled computer, is considered to be the first automatic digital computer as later it was found that it predated the Harvard Mark I (1944) by 3 years.Although Zuse has a degree in civil engineering, he was years ahead of his time.
Concepts of Computing and the Z1 In 1934, Zuse had an idea for a machine to eliminate the need for tedious calculations by hand which were in abundance for his profession as a civil engineer.

 Z3 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Konrad Zuse's Z3 was the first working programmable, fully automatic machine, whose attributes, with the addition of conditional branching, have often been the ones used as criteria in defining a computer.

 Zuse's Z3, the World's First Programmable Computer
Several years before the Colossus in the U.K. and the ENIAC in the U.S., the Z3, built by Konrad Zuse in 1941, was crunching numbers in Germany.
Based on a binary floating-point number and switching system, it had all the attributes of today's computers, such as a control block, a memory, and a calculator.
The calculations needed to overcome this design issue were incredibly complex, and it was this problem that the Z3 solved.

 Raul Roja's article on Zuse   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
We argue that both the Z1 and the Z3 possessed features akin to those of modern computers: memory and processor were separate units, the processor could handle floating-point numbers and compute the four basic arithmetical operations as well as the square root of a number.
The Z3 was documented by Zuse in his patent application Z-391 of 1941 which is rather difficult to decipher due to the non-standard notation and terminology [Zuse 41].
The computation proceeds as usual, but in each cycle the snooping circuit produces the result -64 at the output of the adder of part A. It does not matter what operations are performed with the significands because the exponent of the result is set to -64 and therefore the final result is zero.

Computer history is important because if you know where we are coming from you will have a better idea of where we are going.
The first computers were characterized by the fact that operating instructions were made-to-order for the specific task for which the computer was to be used.
The stored program concept meant that instructions to run a computer for a specific function (known as a program) were held inside the computer's memory, and could quickly be replaced by a different set of instructions for a different function.

 Z3-Computer-1939
Zuse's Z3 COMPUTER, designed and built from 1938 to 1941, was the first automatic, program-controlled, fully functional, general purpose digital computer.
Konrad Zuse's pioneering work in the development of the computer was not widely known until 1965 when descriptions of his work were translated into English.
Zuse was unable to obtain government funding for his computer research, however, and the war effectively blocked communications between his work and that being done in other parts of the world.

In the first example of remote computing, Stibitz astounded the attendees by allowing them to pose problems, which were entered on the teleprinter’s keypad; within a short time, the teleprinter presented the answers generated by the computer.
Unlike the Z1 and Z2, however, the Z3 was constructed completely out of relays (approximately 600 for the arithmetic unit and 1,800 for the memory and control units).
In those days, computers were typically considered only in the context of scientific calculations and data processing for governments, large industries, research establishments, and educational institutions.

 Konrad Zuse Summary
He created the computer in Germany in 1941, but the machine was largely unknown until the 1960s.
The Z3 featured floating point arithmetic (for varying decimals), was fully operational, and used electric telephone relays (on-off switches) for computing operations.
Zuse also designed a high-level programming language, the Plankalkül, allegedly in 1945, although this was a theoretical contribution, since the language was never actually implemented within his lifetime and did not directly influence early implemented languages.

The computer was still largely mechanical, but Zuse was able to get rid of the Babbage's gears by using telephone switching relays.
This was done in Austria during WWII, and it should have been a benefit to the Nazis, but according to some historians, Americans and British bombers destroyed his early machines.
Other historians suggest that Hitler dropped the project because he believed that the war was all but won, and he would not need the power of the computer.

Satisfied with the function of the basic Z2 machine, he built the Z3 and completed it in 1941.
A request by his co-worker Helmut T. Schreyer (1912-1984) to the war-time government for federal funding for an electronic successor to the Z3 was denied as "strategically unimportant".
Notable are the Z11, which was sold to the optics industry and to universities, and the Z22, the first computer with a memory based on magnetic storage.

 Konrad Zuse: The Invention of the Computer
Many reference resources state that the first large-scale digital program-controlled computer was the Harvard Mark 1, which was developed by Howard H. Aiken (and team) in the United States in 1944.
Although based on relays, the Z3 was very sophisticated for its time; for example, it utilized the binary number system and could perform floating-point arithmetic which could be used for complicated arithmetic calculations.
However, modern digital computers are built almost entirely from transistorized versions of these logic gates.
