You read that title correctly… the video above shows an Apple software engineer by the name of Andrew Carol re-building The Antikythera Mechanism… an ancient Greek [about 100 B.C.] creation that many consider the world’s 1st computer out of Lego Technic pieces… over 1500 of them to be exact.  The original creation and this Lego version were used to “predict celestial events and eclipses with unprecedented accuracy”, telling when the next solar eclipse will occur.
