Leonardo Da Vinci

posted by .

I am looking for a cool project idea. My last two projects where a website and a diagram. I have run out of ideas.


You could find some of the drawings from his notebooks and see what came of his mental inventions. In addition to being an accomplished artist, he was also into engineering:

"As an engineer, Leonardo conceived ideas vastly ahead of his own time, conceptually inventing a helicopter, a tank, the use of concentrated solar power, a calculator, a rudimentary theory of plate tectonics, the double hull, and many others. Relatively few of his designs were constructed or were feasible during his lifetime.[3] Some of his smaller inventions such as an automated bobbin winder and a machine for testing the tensile strength of wire entered the world of manufacturing unheralded."
(Be sure to scroll down a bit, click on 3.1 Journals, and read carefully.)

You could find some of these drawings and juxtapose them to photos of current realities.
