This video is absolutely stunning, not only because of the excellence of the Lego construct, but because of beauty of the presentation. Wanna learn more about the Antikythera Mechanism? You’ve come to the right place. MAKE Volume 17 discusses the ancient device in “The Kosmos in a Box” on page 30 while Volume 24 covers a previous Lego Antikythera on page 27.

Check out MAKE, Volume 17: The Lost Knowledge issue!

Buy your copy in the Maker Shed, Subscribe to MAKE, or Access the Digital Edition (if you’re already a subscriber).

In Volume 17, MAKE goes really old school with the Lost Knowledge issue, featuring projects and articles covering the steampunk scene — makers creating their own alternative Victorian world through modified computers, phones, cars, costumes, and other fantastic creations. Projects include an elegant Wimshurst Influence Machine (an electrostatic generator built entirely from Home Depot parts), a Florence Siphon coffee brewer, and a teacup-powered Stirling engine. This special section also covers watchmaking, letterpress printing, the early multimedia art of William Blake, and other wondrous and lost (or fading) pre-20th-century technologies.
