The Greeks invented a steam engine?

'Almost two millennia before the rest of humanity entered the industrial age, the Greek inventor Hero invented the steam engine, wind-powered machinery, and theories of light that couldn't be improved for centuries. And then he invented some really crazy stuff.'

Fascinating article from Kotaku - couldn't read it without reminiscing about long teenage hours spent playing Civilisation, either.
