lego antikythera

Antikythera mechanism in LEGO
Andrew Carol’s hobby is building complex machines using LEGO [note the design of the site, and where it’s hosted]. After recreating Charles Babbage‘s difference engine, he now did the Antikythera mechanism. Have a look behind the scenes and watch the video at vimeo (in HD there, too), or at YouTube.
