Leonardo da Vinci designed the first self-propelled cart capable of moving without being pushed or pulled manually. The precursor to the modern automobile was most likely used during stage performances. It has three wheels and a steering column. The device moves via spring-loaded cams near the wheels. As the springs uncoil the stored power is transferred to the driving wheels using a set of gears.
The scientific genius of Leonardo da Vinci is brought to life through this articulated model. The invention that inspired this snap-together replica is taken from the pages of da Vinci’s priceless and awe-inspiring notebooks. The model is made of plastic and requires no special tools. Manual is very educational and teaches how this invention has evolved into what it is today.
