Welcome back to our regular feature, the Watch Video Rewind.  In this series, we bring to light a video or two that has proven interesting, and think were worth sharing out with our readers.  Today, we are all about Lego.  Read on to see what we have in store!

First up, we have a very clever combination of a childhood fascination (Lego; and if I’m being honest, the fascination still holds) with one of my current interests, horology.  In the video below, they have built a working version, in Lego, Antikythera Mechanism.  What is an Antikythera Mechanism?  Well, let’s just go right with the description from the video:
The Antikythera Mechanism is the oldest known scientific computer, built in Greece at around 100 BCE. Lost for 2000 years, it was recovered from a shipwreck in 1901. But not until a century later was its purpose understood: an astronomical clock that determines the positions of celestial bodies with extraordinary precision.
Without further ado, let’s have a look at the video:

What if you want to build something a bit more modern looking?  How about a Lego wrist watch that could be seen from across the room?

And what if you prefer your time keeper to be digital, and a bit more of a classic clock design?  That’s exactly what we have there with this (very noisy) Lego clock!

With that, we’ll wrap things up.  If you have a video that you’d like to see featured in this series, feel free to drop us a line.
