This device was designed to compress air to obtain flight. the Aerial Screw measured more than 15 feet in diameter and was made from reed, linen, and wire. While working in Venice da Vinci designed his Scuba Gear for sneak attacks on enemy ships from underwater. The leather diving suit was equipped with a bag-like mask that went over the head. One of da Vinci’s famous paintings is the Mona Lisa. The Mona Lisa has been the inspiration behind countless novelty items including clothing, jewelry, house wares, as well as having been used in many modern day advertisements.

About: Leonardo Da Vinci was a talented artist and intelligent inventor. Over his lifetime he invented many machines that are of use to our lives today. Of his inventions two commonly used today are the parachute and scuba gear. His parachute was triangular rather than rounded. Leonardo never built or tested the parachute he just drew a diagram of it in his journal. In 1500 Da Vinci came up with the idea of scuba gear, to attack ships from underwater. Just like the parachute Leonardo didn’t actually build it, he just had diagrams of it in his journal. Leonardo didn’t only invent things he also created very famous painting such as The Last Supper”, “Mona Lisa”, and “The Vitruvian Man”. The Mona Lisa” could be the most famous painting in the world. Between the years 1503-1506 it was painted, while Da Vinci was living in Florence. The actual painting is found today in the Louvre, in Paris. Leonardo lived the life of a passionate and intelligent inventor, who had an incredible open mind.
