Default Who do I need to create a computer from scratch (truly)

I don't mean making one with other people's stuff, I mean created one out of thin air. What type of people would I need I hire?
Like who do I need to make something like and iMac exterior?
I mean like what type of engineers, programmers, etc.

If I read this correctly, you want to design a machine from scratch?

That is a lot of work (and a lot of money). You will need some high-caliber electrical engineers to design a motherboard, to start.

That is honestly the strangest and most intriguing question I've come across on this site, so far. I'm gonna go with what Dngrsone said.

It depends on if you're looking to be involved in the design and creation of the product or just want to start a company that makes computers. If you're wanting to design/create a computer you'll need a really good education in Computer Science, from a reputable University. If you just want to start a computer manufacturing company, then you'll still need an equally good education, only in Business.

Does apple make every part custom? The case would be custom, the CPU and motherboard wouldn't. The keyboard would be custom, maybe backlit.
What materials do you need?
