Lego Antikythera Mechanism ~ Epic Historic Build!

Wow, these guys re-built the Antikythera Mechanism out of Lego Technic!
"The 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."
Thanks to Richard Barbalace for spotting this!
