On this date in 1971, Intel released the world's first commercial single-chip microprocessor, the 4004. Birth of an era!

See if you can count how many microprocessors with which you come in contact today. Look hard, because they hide in refrigerators, watches and even car engines.

Happy 42 years, microprocessors!

Many of our devices and appliances have several. Maybe one for the control panel, one for the part that actual does something. Our smartphones all have at least two each, one for the radio, one for the UI. More than two is not uncommon.
