The Complex Number Calculator (CNC) was completed in 1939, Bell Telephone Laboratories completed this calculator, designed by researcher George Stibitz. In 1940, Stibitz demonstrated the CNC at an American Mathematical Society conference held at Dartmouth College.

This is considered to be the first demonstration of remote access computing.
