*** AWESOME**** 2000 Year Old COMPUTER recreated
Superb video of an incredible scientific find.

AWESOME - the only word for it.
I assumed someone must surely have posted this by now, but I can't find a reference to it on GLP. Apologies if I duplicated by mistake... but this is just too astonishing not to share.

The original device is rotting in the national museeum in Athen.

One of the barking dogs arround this find was Erich von Däniken.

He mentioned in one of his books, that this device was found by greek fishers or divers, cant remember exacly, by a hundered years ago, as a rock from the ground, were some metal broke out.

It was given to the archeological people of greece, who put it in the cellar, until some student found it while cataloging the inventory.

The science continued and offered, what is seen in the video above and rebuild wit lego.

awesome :)

Awesome yes, its the Antikythera mechanism.

[link to en.wikipedia.org]

For the reconstruction they'll have used xray data to figure out the structure of the cogs etc. There is even instructions written on it in Greek. There would have been a little reverse engineering involved as I don't think all the cogs survived.

And also it is in no way a computer.

Its orders of magnitude simpler than Babbages difference engine

Fair enough. I was just pointing out to the OP that this subject was not the most difficult search to do on GLP, that's all - 'Lego', 'Anitikythera', 'Mechanism', y'know. I don't know why he had so much trouble with it. That's all.

Ah yes, the Antikythera mechanism, superb calendar:

[link to en.wikipedia.org]



When will people understand our ancestors where NOT stupid at all. We grossly underestimate them, we still have the same brain.


The European Middle-Ages wasn't called the Dark Ages for nothing. A thousand year of systemic destruction of knowledge.

Like the pyramid for example. We still think they just stacked up blocks of stone, while the reality is probably more like they used reconstructed stone (concrete) -like in the Roman empire- for the outer layer, then filled it with sand and stones.

I'm sure Egyptians officials know this and they forbid to do the analysis that will reveal it was such NOT a mystery.


Most modern scientists always believe they are the epitome of knowledge, Lol.

Sorry! I hold my hands up - this is the first forum I've posted on and I'm still learning my way around. I simply didn't know how to do a search on GLP. Ironically, considering the nature of the post, I am a major computer-tard and get embarrassed having to ask for help all the time. I'll have a more concerted go at the search next time.

"Those who would sacrifice freedom for security deserve neither"
--Benjamin Franlkin

No one ever said freedom was safe. Upon true understanding of the concepts of freedom, you shall realize that freedom is the most dangerous choice of lifestyle. There are no guarantees in freedom but those one provides for themselves, at their own will. True freedom comes with extreme personal risk. Are you willing to take the risk?

You cannot imagine what the idiot archaeologists have put away in boxes because they thought it was not worth showing in a museum. I've heard about fragmented convex lenses, parts of hydraulis (the ancestor of the church organ - automatic though, not like the middle ages crap, using steam) that are not displayed in any of the many museums. For them (archaeologists), only statues and amphorae are worth to be displayed.

The difference engine when finished weighed over 15 tons. The greek clockwork toy is much simpler, smaller and has larger lower tolerence workings still very impressive though.

And yes archeologists do tend to not report what they don't understand

Why would this have been so important 2000 years ago.
The primitive divices of that timne would have surficed for agriculture.

Why would cosimic events have been so import to the maker(s) to have such accuracy?

With that being said, why would it be that important today.
