Inventors and Inventions of the Renaissance

Leonardo Da Vinci

Leonardo is one of the best inventors in history but he had very little affect on his era. This is because most of his inventions were drawings that lead to many future inventions. One of his inventions was a self driven cart that was driven by a spring but it could only turn right. Also he had an idea of a machine gun with muskets.
