Antikythera mechanism in 3D

4. July 2011 22:13

Here's a short video about the Antikythera mechanism posted last week by the Greek ministry of culture and tourism, the Swiss watchmakers Hublot, and the 3D video magazine NVP3D. It includes animations of the mechanism, shots of a wristwatch based on the device, and some lovely footage of the island of Antikythera. Definitely worth 7 minutes of your life. This video is in 2D, but there's a 3D version too (you need a stereoscope), or you can watch it in French.
