This book reinterprets Leonardo da Vinci's mechanical design work, revealing a new level of sophistication not recognized by art historians or engineers. Through a readable, lively narrative, the author explains how he reconstructed da Vinci's robot designs.
This lively book reinterprets Leonardo da Vinci's mechanical design work, revealing a sophistication that has gone unrecognized by art historians or engineers. The book recovers Leonardo's notes, showing that apparently unconnected fragments scattered in manuscripts are actually cohesive designs for functioning automata. Using rough sketches found throughout almost all of Leonardo's notebooks, Mark Rosheim has reconstructed Leonardo's programmable cart, which was the platform for other automata: a Robot Lion, a Robot Knight, and a hydraulic-powered automaton for striking a bell. A foreword by the world-renowned Leonardo scholar Carlo Pedretti interprets the significance of these reconstructions in modern appreciation of Leonardo's genius.
Beginnings.- Leonardo's Programmable Automaton and Lion.- Leonardo's Knight.- Leonardo's Bell Ringer.- Epilogue Leonardo's Legacy and Impact on Modern Technology.
This book reinterprets Leonardo da Vinci's mechanical design work, revealing a new level of sophistication not recognized by art historians or engineers. The book reinterprets Leonardo's legacy of notes, showing that apparently unconnected fragments from dispersed manuscripts actually comprise cohesive designs for functioning automata.

Through a readable, lively narrative, the author explains how he reconstructed da Vinci's designs.
