Now that would be impressive! Showing the engineering, machining,
and general complexity of gear like this would I think be
literally awesome. You might not get the kiddies to conceded that
it could be cool to play games that aren't photorealistically
rendered (let alone ASCII), but I think they'd be dumbstruck by
seeing how enormously complicated real world objects can be.

The real-world analogy would be the moving partial cutaways of
motors seen at autoshows. I'm sure it's come up before, but I
don't remember seeing anything like this at the Boston Computer
Museum many, many years ago. Are there some exhibits like this
in the CHM's new digs?
