LEGO Antikythera Mechanism

The Antikythera Mechanism is the oldest known scientific computer, built in Greece at around 100 BCE. Lost for 2000 years, it was recovered from a shipwreck in 1901, but not until a century later was its purpose understood: an astronomical clock that determines the positions of celestial bodies with extraordinary precision. 

In 2010, a fully-functional replica was built out of LEGOs, 

sponsored by Digital Science — a new division of Macmillan Publishers that provides technology solutions for researchers. Enjoy!
