OMFG The Antikythera mechanism!

SQUEE!

Think how much of a game changing device this must have been when it was first constructed.  It would have enabled ships to travel farther, for people to plan events far in advance, and generally make life good.  Did they see it as a toy, or as a functional and reproducible design that could revolutionize the world?
