Re: Did we ever make a full analytical engine?

The other week BBC4 (I think) showed an excelent documentary on her.

With the anyalitical engine, they said the 'standard' machie would have been around 45 foot long, but plans for a large more powerful would have been well over the 100 foot lenght. The difference being the amount of memory(!)

If this had been built, then steam punk would have ruled!!
