OK, this is just too cool not post about.
A software engineer at Apple recreated the “Antikythera Mechanism” – perhaps the oldest known computer – is a device that calculates the date of celestial events.
The cool thing is that he does it with Legos – every Geek’s favorite analog toy. It’s kind of ironically fascinating to me that he did it with legos – kind of today’s most versatile and loved analog building material. See the video after the jump.
