Computers Old and New C.17.04.22

The Antikythera mechanism is an ancient analogue computer believed to have been made by Greek scientists around 150 or 100 B.C.E. The computer was used to predict astronomical positions and even eclipses. It remains a mystery because the technology was not seen again until the 14th century when mechanical clocks were being made in Euro.

Inventions are the grace of mankind and reinventions like a revolving door continue to happen.

Happy Celeritism
