The Antikythera Mechanism was discovered in 1900 and is the oldestknown scientific instrument (150 to 100 BC), the earliest computer.
It consists of 3 parts made of brass plates and gears. The device has 32 gears revolving around 10 axes.The operation of the device resulted in at least 5 dials, with one or more hands on each. It is the finest testimony to the great collective astronomical knowledge.
This is the predecessor of modern positioning tools, based on the accurate operation of the gears.
