Leonardo da Vinci's Top Inventions.

My Favorite Inventions

Some of my Leonardo da Vinci's inventions include the Aerial Screw, Armored Tank, and the Diving Suit. He didn't actually create these things because they didn't have the materials when he lived which was in the 1400s and 1500s. Also the people of that time would probably of thought he was crazy because his scetches were so ahead of his time. My overall favorite invention is the Aerial Screw because it is like the modern helicopter and it facinates me how things can fly.

Other top inventions

Some other top inventions include the Ball Bearing, parachute, machine gun, Diving Suit, self propeled cart, city of the future, and the Robotic Knight. These are also very important inventions for example Ball bearings make it possible for drive shafts to rotate, for goods to roll along ramps in a factory or store, and for mechanical devices in general to operate. Also the Parachute allows us to jump from high areas and survive because the parachute is able to reduce a person's terminal velocity and make a long fall survivable.
