Last month I posted a documentary on ‘decoding’ of the Antikythera Mechanism, the 2000-year-old ‘computer’ found in a shipwreck off the Greek coast. For those who found that interesting – or even if you’re just a ‘Maker’ – you might like to check out a new series of YouTube videos being posted by Chris of Clickspring Projects, in which he is attempting to make a version of the Antikythera Mechanism faithful to the original construction (though using modern machinery.
You’ll find the first three episodes below – though the project is still to be completed, so you might like to subscribe to his channel to be notified when the next episode drops.
If you found the videos interesting and educational, note that Chris has a Patreon page for ClickSpring where you can support his brilliant work.
