It's a replica of Charles Babbage's Difference Engine.
It comes in peace.

This is the Nazi Enigma coding machine, an evil computer if there ever was one.
This is one of Alan Turing's bombes, used in Britain's code-breaking efforts.

There's a skull right there. I don't know what else you need.
It's another Difference Engine.
Lotta gears, no evil.
The first Terminator? Totally evil.

This is the Terminator from Terminator 2! At the end, he sacrifices himself for the boy! For humanity! I'm sorry, there's something in my eye.

It's just a MacBook Air.
