In 1411 the piano was invented.The first
model was called the Spinet. However, historians
regard the actual identity of the inventor
as controversial. The first design for the parachute was drawn by Leonardo da Vinci in 1483. The first mechanical clock was invented in the early 1300's.Galileo's invention of the pendulum allowed for this. The printing press was invented by a german named Johannes Gutenberg in 1436. Although he would not live to see it made, Leonardo developed the first under water warship but did not share his work to avoid ridicule. In 1608, Hans Lippershey
invented the telescope which
was improved in 1668 by Galileo. Matches first appeared in Europe around 1530.
However, Historians are not sure by whom
they were invented. The first useful microscope
was invented between 1590
and 1608.Has Lippershey
and Hans Janssen. The earliest design for a "Flying Machine", or airpland was drawn by Leonardo da Vinci during the Renaissance.
