They started in 1896 making a punch card tabulating machine for the US sencus. Before this machine it would have taken more then 10 years to count all the data, and the census was taken every 10 years (hence the need for something better).

So yes they are OVER 100 years old. Check the link for a timeline. Didnt commodore start out as a maker of calculators?
