Chronicles of a Young Wife: Mind Museum Special – Leonardo Da Vinci, An Inventor

Da Vinci – An Inventor

This genius conceptualized the modern machines we use as a normal part of our everyday lives today. His inventions led the way to a more comfortable way of living and I’m so happy to relive his inventions and try out his machines made of wood.

He indeed made our lives even more comfortable and do things easier. I best love the part where we get to “try” these wooden piece of art instead of just looking at it on a certain distance. I also appreciate the detailed diagrams and in-depth description of what were the machines are.

It would take one a whole day to learn each and every piece of this genius works, and several posts to tackle each field of Da Vinci’s expertise.
