Leonardo da Vinci Mechanical Inventions


Leonardo da Vinci mechanical inventions and its advances are astounding. He created the first spring driven clock, the first robot and the first self powered vehicle among many other things.

Some of these inventions were taken into industry immediately, such as the bobbin winder, others, like his notes showing the self powering car, were lost until 1901. Others were less groundbreaking but impressive nonetheless – complex gear systems, the first constantly variable transmission and a lens/mirror grinding machine.

There are only a handful of people that have made such a contribution to the advances in mechanics and mechanical engineering. He made such an impact on this field that we think in time he will also be seen as one of the greatest mechanical engineers of all time.
