The Ageless Ideas of Leonardo Da VinciBook - 2009
Highlighting the incredible inventions drafted before their time by this genius of the Renaissance and comparing them to those which came hundreds of years later, the accomplishments and creativity of this famous inventor, artist, scientist, and engineer is examined and explored.
An introduction to Leonardo da Vinci's genius focusing on his famous notebook sketches and the modern inventions they predicted.
In 1781, Thomas Paine came up with a model for a single-span bridge; in 1887, Adolf Eugen Fick made the first pair of contact lenses; and in 1907, Paul Cornu built the first helicopter. But Leonardo da Vinci thought of all these ideas more than five hundred years ago!
At once an artist, inventor, engineer, and scientist, da Vinci wrote and drew detailed descriptions of what would later become hang gliders, automobiles, robots, and much more. In Neo Geo, Gene Barretta cleverly shows how Leonardo's ideas—many inspired by his love of nature—foreshadowed modern inventions, offering a window into the future.
