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, this fully-functional replica was built out of Lego by an Apple Engineer.

Expect to seem something similar on TV soon, probably a BMW ad.

It was created using Processing, an open source programming language and environment for people who want to program images, animation, and interactions. Set the player to Fullscreen mode and enjoy.
