Real World ConnectionEdit
Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci was a Renaissance painter, sculptor, architect, musician, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, writer, and all-around genius. He was considered to be a man with "unquenchable curiosity" and "feverishly inventive imagination". He's considered to be one of the greatest painters of all time and one of the world's most diversely talented individuals.
Leonardo drew plans for and built machines that mainstream society wouldn't conceive of for hundreds of years. Leonardo drew blueprints for musical instruments, hydraulic pumps, reversible crank mechanisms, finned mortar shells, and a steam cannon. He even made several attempts at creating a flying machine, one with numerous similarities to eventual 20th century designs.
Ironically, Da Vinci believed creating a perpetual motion device was a fool's dream. He even told inventors looking to create one to go join the alchemists and their foolish pursuit to turn iron into gold.
