Try counting steps on your way home. Or how many people you meet on a stroll through the park. How about, the number of blue cars passing by your house for one hour? Count stairs at home, at school, or at a friend’s house, the options are endless.
When and who invented it
A counter, as a key part of the odometer mechanism, was invented by an Ancient Greek mathematician and engineer Hero of Alexandria who lived in 10-70 AD. It measured the length of the path by counting the number of rotations of the wheel. Later, the counter was improved and completed with a reducer that reduced the number of the wheel’s revolutions depending on the measuring system (miles, leagues, kilometres) and showed reduced data on the display.
These days, counters are used to count the number of passengers, visitors of different events, cars passing through certain check point, sets and scores in sport, items on a production line, etc.
