But first, Intel tried using the 4004 in a bunch of products that were interesting but often unsuccessful--like a pinball machine, an electronic vote-counting machine, and Wang's first word processor. Technologizer's Benj Edwards is celebrating the anniversary with an illustrated look back at this landmark chip."
