The Antikythera Mechanism, the first analog computer in human history, is so important for the evolution of technology as the Parthenon for the evolution of architecture! It was constructed between 150-200 BCE and was used to calculate the exact position of the Sun, the Moon and possibly the planets in the sky. It calculated the phases of the Moon, predicted eclipses and indicated the date of the panhellenic games. It had front and back doors, with astronomical, geographical and technological inscriptions covering much of the exterior of the Mechanism
This replica is a two-times smaller perfect copy of the Antikythera Mechanism, made of wood, anodized aluminum (in bronze color) and gold plated hypo-allergic metal. All the inscriptions are perfect copies of the real ones. It has to be pinpointed that it is not a functional model and it was designed for decoration purposes. It does not contain any gears or other mechanical parts but it has all the visible inscriptions of the real Mechanism.
