@carmium: lolz! True that!
THINK of how it was made: not by "trial and error" since the parts are outrageously expensive & hard to make: they had a plan! And if ONE cog is off by ONE tooth? The whole device fails! It's likely they built a "simple" one, then kept adding features as each model progressed, arriving at the Antikythera over time.
It`s still freaking amazing! Hooray for the Human Race!
