Greek Antikythera Mechanism from Lego

Engineer builds operative facsimile of Greek Antikythera Mechanism from Lego

Just stumbled over this unique experiment with Lego. Apparently the old Greek already had a kind of clock work to predict eclipses. However this knowledge got lost. In 1901 treasure hunters found the piece in a wreckage another number of decennia past by before somebody found out what it was for. Now the technology is recovered again and these guys rebuild it with Technic Lego, very impressive. Watch the video for detailed clarification.
