-crossbow Da Vinci came up with his own way writing. He still wrote in Italian, however the clever man wrote backwards. Basically instead of writing left to right he wrote right to left. He could read his words by looking at them in a mirror. There are several reasons suggested to why he wrote like this. The first was that he wanted to conceal his innovating ideas and notes. It could have been that he didn't want the Roman Catholic Church to know about his scientific ideas. And lastly, it could be that it was easier to write that way when left handed because his words wouldn't smear. Why do you think Leonardo used this curious way of writing? Helicopter
Two men would run on the lower level spin and this could cause the upper level to rotate, as well. All of these parts working together could potentially result in flight. This idea most likely came from the descent of sycamore seeds to the ground. Da Vinci's Sketches Help Our World Today When Da Vinci sketched his ideas, he helped shaped the future. He paved the way for flying machines and other scientific items. Because of his sketches of the human body in proportions which assist surgeons and doctors to cure ill people. Da Vinci's architectural designs gave people ideas for building things with limited supplies. Hope you liked it! :) Works Cited “Exploring Leonardo.” Museum of Science. Museum of Science, 2012.
