What surprises would hide an ancient smart home for ancient burglars? Would it be able to notify its owners in time?
Those who dare to take their chances, will have to pay tribute to one of the most important engineers of Ancient Greece, Heron from Alexandria. An intelligent automatic sound production system on the back of the door, will reveal its secrets and will sound for our ears only! Air, water, pressure and gravity will become the natural allies of safety.
The ancient Greek alarm that sounded for the first time in the 1st century BC. in Alexandria, will be heard today in the heart of Athens and will tell hidden stories of justice, science and philosophy linked to the daily life of the ancient Greek world. Are you ready to listen to what he has to say?
