The Antikythera Simulation android app is an interactive 3D simulation drawn with OpenGLES of the 2 best known models of the Antikythera Mechanism as developed by scientists, and in the same time a showcase of the capabilities of your android powered handset!
These versions are preliminary ones, without much attention to the relative gear diameters or vertical positions.

This android app is actually a port to Java of a C project with a few minor corrections and additions added in the way. It was developed using the Eclipse IDE under Ubuntu.
You may find the original C project in the link below. It will run on any Windows machine and via Wine on Linux.

The C project is not yet open-sourced but it will become available sometime.

The source code is published under the FreeBSD license, so you may use the code freely and for any cause you wish. Using a reference to the original source is encouraged and appreciated. Feel free to fork the program and make it even better. I will gladly commit good patches and acknowledge the contributors.

Thanks for visiting.
