If there is ever a single person who can be truly described as a “Renaissance Man”, it is Leonardo da Vinci. Most famous for his paintings of the ‘Mona Lisa’ and ‘The Last Supper’, he was a great deal more than just an artist: Sculptor, Architect, Musician, Scientist, Mathematician, Anatomist, Cartographer……the list goes on and on! In addition to those skills, he was also renowned in his own lifetime as an engineer and, most importantly from our point of view, a prolific inventor who laid out plans and designs for machines, many of which could and would not be built until hundreds of years after his death.
“Codex Interactivus will be a book of Leonardo’s inventions that have been brought to life with Augmented Reality Software. We will demonstrate Leonardo’s genius by using his designs, conceived in the pre-scientific era when people still believed that the Sun orbited the earth, and showing how they would have worked if he had access to modern technology” says Ben Vaughan, CEO at Artoolworks.
