A German, Konrad Zuse, created the first programmable computer, the Z1, in 1936. It is considered to be the first electro-mechanical binary programmable computer, and the first really functional modern computer.

The Z1 had 64-word memory (each word contained 22 bits) and a clock speed of 1 Hz. Both programming and output were generated using punch tape with a specific reader. Below is a picture taken in 1937 of the Z1 computer.
