A chinese counting machine. Now outdated, has been banished to preschools and daycare centers for childrens entertainment. Sometimes considered, in its most basic form, the first computer.
Consists of 5 horizontal bars, each holding a number of beads that slide back and forth.
The little girl pushed the beads on the abacus from one side to the other.
