ameso — The Antikythera Mechanism on Squeak EToys
"Here you can find a complete emulation of the Antikythera mechanism on the Squeak EToys environment. Its construction follows the recent findings of the Antikythera Mechanism Research Project. I have developed this as a prototype base for educational activities on the XO machine of the One Laptop per Child initiative. Implementing the mechanism as an EToys application is a goldmine for educational activities in the following areas:

* Astronomy: the motion of bodies; relationships; calendars
* Arithmetic: calculating with fractions
* Geometry: angles; constructing an ellipse; triangle properties; spirals
* Mechanical engineering: gears
* Physics: angular velocity; friction
* Archeology: ancient greek technology; carbon dating; computer tomography
* Computer science: emulation; problem decomposition; graphs; geometric algorithms
* Science: the process of scientific discovery"
