Antikythera Mechanism: What!?

The Antikythera Mechanism is believed to be an ancient mechanical calculator (also described as a “mechanical computer”) designed to calculate astronomical positions. It was discovered in the Antikythera wreck off the Greek island of Antikythera, between Kythera and Crete, and has been dated to about 150-100 BC. It is especially notable for being a technological artifact with no known predecessor or successor; other machines using technology of such complexity would not appear until the 18th century. While a century of research is finally answering the question of what the mechanism did, we are actually no nearer to answering the question what it was for.

It's been shot with gamma radiation, taken apart, x-rayed and shown to have thousands of microscopic moving parts, gears, springs...

Okay so its way ahead of its time, and it tells time.. Does not belong in history anywhere at all.. I.. Umm.... . . .
