A Lego Antikythera Mechanism

YouTube link.

The Antikythera Mechanism has been featured a number of times on Neatorama, including a working model created in 2008.  This year a fully functional replica has been created using Lego materials.  Since gears with 19, 47, 127, and 223 teeth were not publicly available, a complex differential shaft had to be fashioned.

Two Nature videos about the original Antikythera Mechanism are available at The Guardian.
