  1. Very cool. I’ve always been amazed by the complexity of the Antikythera device. Has anyone read the book mentioned? It’s not released yet in the US…

  2. I’ve found schematics of the gear works from a couple of years ago, but nothing since the more recent discoveries. So if someone wanted to remake this, where’s the best place to find the necessary information?
