The Renaissance was a period of curiosity and discovery for many, but the man that truly defined a Renaissance man was Leonardo Da Vinci: a true genius who had the intellectual ability to create anything in his mind with his creativity and brilliance. He was an inventor, a scientist, a mathematician and a painter who had the mind and visions of a thinker centuries ahead of his time. Hundreds of years later, he is still one of the most recognized and iconic people in the world, known for his paintings like the Mona Lisa and he changed the way art was created. But one success Da Vinci had that is not as well known as his iconic art such as the Last Supper were his inventions. Although he created many inventions in his time, much of Leonardo Da Vinci's genius achievements in his creations, sketches, and ideas of inventions were unfortunately found centuries after his death therefore resulting in a minor impact on world history.
In this paper, I am going to focus on “The Triple Barrel Canon” and “The Glider”, and how they had an impact on life at that time, or how today these ideas are still used by scientist in order to make new inventions. Leonardo di Ser Piero da Vinci was born in Vinci, Italy. In 1466, he moved to Florence, where he became an apprentice of the painter Andrea Del Verrochio. Verrochio was his first influential teacher, and with his help Leonardo developed his skills as an artist. His first work of great significance was the “Adoration of the Magi”.
His interest in science, and how he used his knowledge will be discussed. Herein subjects of interest to da Vinci are also included. An Extremely Famous Artist, Scientist too? Leonardo da Vinci, perhaps that name brings to mind the Mona Lisa, or maybe The Last Supper, or possibly even Vitruvian Man. Although he is known more prominently as the greatest artist who ever lived da Vinci was a polymath, a man of many skills most of which are shadowed by the popularity of his works of art.
Leonardo was truly a genius. It may come off as a surprise but the roots of robotic technology and programmable technology all came from the renaissance era because of Leonardo Da Vinci. His designs prove that there was thoughts of robotic technology five-hundred years ago. It was amazing when engineers and robot fanatics figured out one of Da Vinci’s designs. They were all very shocked by how much this one man has achieved, better yet, his first robotic creation was made in his younger years.
He moved to Milan and worked for the Duke for around 17 years.

Leonardo Da Vinci indeed would be considered the smartest man to have ever embraced the earth because of his immense contribution to the modern world. I personally sometimes imagine what if Leonardo Da Vinci existed today and had the modern tools to work with, how he would revolutionize the present and future sometimes just gives me the shivers because I do not believe that if ever a human will ever have the knowledge, dedication, inspiration, thinking that Leonardo Da Vinci had. Even though, he existed 500 years ago, his presence still exists through his works and influence which still inspires many to believe in something and go for it.
While working on his helicopter in 1910, he also built 3 planes and flew 2 of them. Even though both planes crashed, designing the planes gave him the belief that he could create flying machines. Russian composer, Sergei Rachmaninoff, gifted $5,000 to Sikorsky to keep his tiny company going during the early years. Two years after World War II started in Europe, on September 14, 1939, Sikorsky first flew the VS-300 helicopter while it was attached by lines to the ground. Even though Igor hoped the helicopter would be more popular, the skill needed to fly the helicopter made it not so popular.“On May 6, 1941, Sikorsky flew his VS-300 for 1 hour, 32 minutes, and 26 seconds, breaking the previous world record of 1 hour and 20 minutes that the Fa-61 had held since 1937.”-Don Berliner.
Most of all, Leonardo da Vinci developed new art techniques and revolutionized art and science as it was. Leonardo was also an architect, musician, engineer, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer. Da Vinci was born on April 15, 1452 in Vinci, Italy. His father was a public notary in Milan, and his mother, a simple maiden. When Leonardo was little, he would always try to invent new things, and was very intelligent.
These ideas sparked the flame of this man’s life forever. To make many of the greatest inventions and art in the world he used these quotes to become smarter and more imaginative. Leonardo da Vinci's inventions and art have made him one of the most acclaimed intellectuals of his time. Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci was born on April 15, 1452 in the town of Vinci in the territory of Florence. He was the son of Messer Piero Frusino di Antonio da Vinci and Catarina.
Leonardo Da Vinci was very talented. He was a great artist, but he became famous because he was able to do so many other things. He was an architect, a musician, inventor, sculptor, scientist, and mathematician. His artistic talent revealed its self early in his life. When he was about 15 years old Leonardo's father took him to Florence Italy, to train as a painter and sculptor in the studio of Andrea del Verroccho.

His sharp eye led him to discover unimaginable magic behind nature’s accomplishment of the human body and its proportion. Although he liked the idea of realism, he wanted to know the ideal proportion in detail to perfect the divine figures in his art. Leonardo believed that brain, heart, and lungs were “motors of the senses and of life,” (Heydenreich). His findings were never published because he believed his idea behind anatomy might give people wrong understanding of anatomy due to the fact that he didn’t consider himself a professional.
