AIM OF THIS PAGE
The aim of this Leonardo Da Vinci Inventions page is to hold all of Leonardo’s known created technologies. Also included are improvements of technologies that existed when Leonardo was still alive. We shall provide a growing and complete as possible analysis of each invention. This analysis will reveal all types of information, such as how close to the mark was Leonardo with his designs and if they were ever built and tested. More importantly however, are the insights we may gain of the mind processes of Leonardo.

– INTERESTING POINTS ON LEONARDO DA VINCI INVENTIONS –
DESIGNS WERE FOR LEONARDO HIMSELF
Leonardo’s notes and designs were mostly to himself, especially as he hadn’t finished turning them into an encyclopaedia for others to use.
DESIGNS ARE JUST STARTING POINTS
Most of Leonardo’s designs were prototypes, which meant they were starting points for an idea to be made to then be developed further. They are not end product designs unless stated by Leonardo.
PATENTS: MISINFORMATION TO MISSING INFORMATION
In order to protect his ideas from them being stolen or abused by others, Leonardo left out some information of his designs or put in misinformation. His notes are also written in left-handed mirror writing in order to better protect his ideas further.
